In today's dentistry, with the development of adhesive techniques and the improvement of resin-based materials, invasive restorative treatments have been replaced by minimally invasive or noninvasive restorative procedures. Fiber-reinforced adhesive bridges are minimal-invasive or noninvasive restorations that can be applied for definitive restoration in single tooth loss or short spans, where teeth or implant-supported fixed partial prosthesis cannot be applied. This case series describes the rehabilitation of three patients with anterior single tooth loss using the direct fiber-reinforced adhesive bridge. In all patients, esthetic and functional deficiencies in the missing tooth regions were solved with this minimally invasive technique, which is both cost-effective and conservative of tooth structures. During the three-year follow-up of these cases, there was neither fracture nor decementation in the restorations. Also, no caries or sensitivity was noted in the support teeth.
