Dental Bridge Case Studies

These are some more of our case studies from the thousands of dental bridge procedures we have performed over the last 45 years.

Case Study 2

Metal framework for fitted bridge and final results

This case is about sixteen years old. He was missing every other upper tooth. We installed a continuous whole arch bridge. It was difficult to get a casting that size to fit perfectly, but it turned out beautifully in the end. As you can see, it took two tries. John out lived his only wife, who succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease. John was taken by lymphoma, a cancer, about eight years ago, he really appreciated what we were able to do for his cosmetic appearance during the final years of life.

Case Study 3

Two root canals and posts to repair damage of front teeth from an unprovoked gang attack

This dental bridge case was completed nearly twenty five years ago. The patient was lucky to get out of a gang assault with his life, but his smile was left in shambles after the attack. We had to reconstruct both upper and lower anterior (front) teeth with porcelain fused to metal crowns and root canals. His children should be about the same age now as he was then.

Case Study 4

Repair of heavily characterized porcelain fused to metal crown.

We handled this case over a decade ago & it required a great deal of colorization.

Case Study 5

Porcelain veneers installed on front teeth

This case was a fixed bridge on the upper left and two porcelain veneers on the central incisors. He was married to one of my dental assistance’s best friend.

Case Study 6

Fixed bridge of front teeth

This patient returned to me last week after thirteen years, and several other dentist. His bridge looks better than his own teeth after a decade. A perfect example of a fixed bridge.

Case Study 7

Fixed bridge on lower anterior

This rocket and electrical engineer now lives in Texas. He designs electric motors. With his new lower bridge, I changed his appearance enough to change his cosmetic social acceptance.

Case Study 8

Tooth restoration with porcelain inlays

Today, dental inlays are the rage in aesthetic dentistry offices. This case was from 20 years ago. Insurance companies didn’t want to pay for porcelain dental inlays and porcelain onlays. Dental inlays occupy the position between fillings and full porcelain crowns.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.

A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.

This dental office is beyond professional. A landmark of our city, to say the least. Dr. Carson has been serving our community for quite some time, with true care and concern for his patients. If you want a true dental experience, then I would highly advise you to make an appointment with them 🙂

Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.
