Re: about to have infected lateral removed. help
Do not go the route of shaving down two healthy teeth to put in bridge; that what I did and regretted so badly. You would be asking for more troubles down the road by crowning teeth. Yes, there are people going about their merry way after crowns or bridges, but there also a lot of people have problems after the work done on their teeth, like crown/bridge doesn't fit or look good, cavity developed under, continuous pain and root canal, and eventually leading to extraction. Implant, if done right(very important), is actually cheaper and a much better option.
