Patients refusing implant surgery for psychological reasons, where minimal reduction of tooth is preferred, a fiber-reinforced composite fixed partial denture can be a good alternative to conventional prosthetic techniques. In comparison to other restorative systems this is a conservative approach carries a minimum jeopardy of pulp exposure or sensitivity and periodontal inflammation, maintaining the health of supporting tissues. The aim of this case report is to describe the clinical procedure for fabricating an IFPD with a pre-impregnated glass fiber system and a hybrid composite. Fiber-reinforced composite, in combination with adhesive techniques, appears promising for an IFPD. Further clinical investigation will be required to provide additional information on this technique.
