I recently got a tooth extracted (the one just behind my right canine (a pre-molar I believe)). My dentist said that I would have to get a fixed bridge which involves chiseling down the canine (the tooth in front of the extraction site) as well as chiseling down the tooth behind the extraction site. After which, a fixed bridge will be placed over the two chiseled-down teeth and the extraction site. My question: are there any alternatives to getting a fized bridge that DO NOT involve destroying two perfectly good teeth via chiseling? I'd hate to have to get a mock canine tooth as a part of my bridge versus chiseling down a perfectly good canine. Is there any other way to place a dummy tooth in the extraction site without affecting the state of my remaining teeth?
