The technique of bonded bridges was introduced in dentistry by Rochette in 1963. It was the first type of minimally-invasive fixed prosthesis [1,2]. Its principle consists in bonding a metal frame on the teeth adjacent to the edentulous area. These bonded bridges have experienced significant development from their conception to the present [3,4]. Initially, these restorations failed through frequent debond caused by the absence of tooth preparation, very attractive in the early years. In fact, bonding cannot replace the retention or resistance to occlusal forces (loosening and shear) provided by the preparations. Nowadays, it is widely accepted that a minimal preparation of the supporting teeth is essential to ensure the sustainability of the bonded prosthesis. A careful case selection is important to predict esthetic and functional restoration with medium or long-term survival. Abutments should be vital and aligned showing sufficient enamel available for bonding and should coronal length which is favorable for retention [5].
