i want to know if my left upper front tooth can be prepped as if it is going to be used as an abutment for a dental bridge but be used first to attach a two crown bridge just to help with the appearance of my smile. i will need a block bone graft and i need to know how long before i can receive the two crown bridge or some other type of partial denture. I do not want to go 4-6 months with out a tooth or teeth before implants or a fixed bridge can be installed.

Two crowns and block graft?
I would need radiographs and diagnostic photos but usually final crowns can be placed after surgery in 6-8 weeks. good luck
