What does the procedure involve?

Most cases of FibreBond bridges are completed without local anaesthesia. Very little preparation (only roughening of the enamel) is done to the anchor teeth. In some cases a very shallow groove preparation may be considered. This groove stays within the enamel where the best bonding will be obtained. Placing rubber dam isolation in these cases will simplify the procedure for both the dentist and the patient and is recommended. Rubber dam isolation is a rubber sheaf that fits around the teeth (see below). This will isolate the working area and will form a shield to protect the patient’s airway. Please inform your dentist if you are allergic to latex!
