Abstract : The challenge faced by dental surgeons with a single missing anterior tooth is multifaceted, particularly in achieving functional, aesthetic, and biological integration. This challenge becomes more pronounced in adolescents or young adults, where the passive eruption of the tooth is still active, necessitating the postponement of implant placement. As either a temporary or long-term solution, a fixed prosthesis can be considered. However, in the current era emphasizing maximum tissue preservation, dental practices are increasingly leaning towards a benign and conservative prosthetic approach known as the "cantilever bonded bridge." This approach is specifically indicated for the replacement of central or lateral maxillary incisors and mandibular incisors, demanding adherence to a meticulous and stringent clinical protocol. This article delves into a simplified clinical realization of the ceramic cantilever bridge. The utilization of cantilever bonded bridges, particularly those with a single retainer, emerges as a compelling alternative in comparison to various other therapeutic options.

Keywords : Adhesive Bridge, Cantilever, Minimally Invasive, Bonding, Ceramic, Lateral Incisors, Anterior Single-Tooth, Edentulous.
