How long should a Bridge be guaranteed by a dentist if he initially did not cement it permanently?
Doctor Answers 1
There are no guarantees with dentistry
Just like medicine, nothing is guaranteed. Every BODY is different, every situation is different. We have data to predict averages, but for every bridge that lasted 40 years, there is one that lasted 6 months. The cement is not important, sometimes "temporary" cement is used permanently (most commonly with implants).
