Repair a broken bridge
I have a merrill bridge with a wing on one side the wing lost its cement. My dentist says it will break if he takes it off. $1500 down the drain and only about 5 years. What is a more permenant solution? crown and an implant?
We are finding that implants are generally lasting longer than any other option. An implant and an individual crown is a very good option.
