It is not uncommon for people to be born without certain teeth, especially front teeth. Missing one or more teeth is perhaps the most common congenital malformation (or congenially missing teeth). More than 20% of us lack one or more wisdom teeth (third molars). More than five percent of us lack one or more second premolars or upper second (lateral) incisors. The patient could not have implants because her roots were too close to each other. Her anterior teeth were restored with two fixed porcelain Lava Bridges and the pre-molars with porcelain veneers.
