The fiber fibers that underlie this structure are extremely durable and, after hardening with a photopolymer lamp, become as solid as steel. Modern photopolymers slightly improve the performance of natural enamel in strength and durability. The bonding of photopolymer and fiber to dental structures is called adhesive. This is the strongest link in modern dentistry. It relies on all photopolymer restorations and cementing of porcelain structures - crowns, inlays and veneers. This bond is much stronger than that of dental cements. The weakness of conventional bridges is the cement they are glued to. The shelf life of fiber bridges is the same as that of metal ceramics.
In the first place, it is indisputable to keep the supporting teeth untrained. This greatly prolongs the life of the teeth, and there is practically no irritation of the gum around them.
For heavily inclined teeth, no killing is required, which would occur when cutting them.
Due to the extremely good hardness of the photopolymer, the opposing teeth are not wiped.
Another great advantage is the lack of metal in the restoration - we have all seen dark-colored crowns of metal-ceramic crowns.
Last but not least, the treatment is performed in one visit. The cost is slightly lower than that for making a ceramic bridge. If the patient is able to insert an implant after a few years, removal of the bridge is extremely easy and quick, leaving the adjacent teeth untamed.
