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 1

Bridge to replace four missing teeth
This woman is a success story by any measure. This dental work was a result of an accident earlier in life where her teeth were knocked out. She had worn a removable partial for over ten years. I made a fixed half arch bridge. She owns her own retail parts business. A lost out of town person came into her business for directions; after receiving directions, he complemented how beautiful her teeth were. This lost dentist paid me the highest complement possible. She replied,” thank you but they are not mine, they were made by Doctor Carson. ” I wish I could have been there to catch his surprise.

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.

Excellent service. Dr. Derek was the only emergency oral surgeon to respond, everything was done so fast and without pain. Highly recommended, Carmen is his amazing front office manager, she is highly professional and knowledgeable. I had very painful broken wisdom tooth removed. I can honestly say I have waited longer at the Starbucks Drive thru. Thank you!!!
