The minimal-preparation, resin-retained adhesive bridge may be considered to be an ideal choice of fixed prosthesis to replace a single missing tooth, especially in the anterior maxillary region. The technique is well documented, enjoys a high success rate, and with suitable case selection generally employs a conservative preparation. Other advantages include reduced cost compared with conventional bridges and simplified laboratory and clinical procedures. Its limitations are principally due to occlusal factors, or the presence of unsuitable abutment teeth--for example, those that are extensively restored. Another traditional contraindication is the presence of diastemas, which may limit the potential aesthetic gains. This paper presents a series of case reports which describe an altered technique in order to maintain anterior spacing.
