Fibre Reinforced Bridges
The FRC bridge is a minimally invasive and cost-effective way to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
Instead of metal, glass fibre strands (or bundles) are used to create a fibre frame . The missing tooth or teeth are replaced with composite white filling material. The glass fibre bundles are embedded in the white filling material. The fibre frame is attached to the natural teeth with an adhesive. The bond between composite resin and tooth enamel is the strongest bond possible in the mouth. The anchor teeth are undamaged unlike normal bridgework where almost all the enamel of the anchor teeth is removed during the bridge preparation.
