As an alternative to a conventional fixed partial denture, a modification of the hybrid resin-bonded bridge was used to compensate for a spatial discrepancy accentuated by a missing tooth. The proximal margins of the restoration were extended onto the facial surfaces of the abutment teeth to create a partially veneered surface. The abutment teeth were widened by shifting the embrasure into the edentulous space, thus creating more esthetic proportions.
