After talking with her, I got to know that she had lost one of her front tooth and was wearing a denture. Although the denture was okay for her, she wanted something fixed to replace her tooth. This was because she found it hard to recite the Quran and to talk to people with a denture in her mouth.

I sat down with her to discuss the multiple options that she had. After much consideration, we opted for a fibre-reinforced composite (FRC) bridge to replace the missing front tooth. It was a good economical solution and we didn’t have to trim the adjacent teeth too.
The tooth shade could be matched better compared to a denture, the shine of the tooth was also much better.
After placing the FRC bridge, we let her see her smile again in the mirror. She was very pleased with how it looked very natural when she smiled. And most importantly, she loved that there was no more denture in her mouth, and she could talk better now!
