This article presents a modified resin-bonded fixed partial denture technique of replacing a single missing anterior tooth under limitation of material and time. This technique involved a small section of an oral surgery arch bar that was bent and fitted passively into the grooves that were prepared in the lingual of the abutment teeth. A polycarbonate crown was fitted passively on the arch bar by a thin layer of Vaseline. The polycarbonate crown was then filled with acrylic resin to bond the polycarbonate crown and the arch bar together. The result provides an esthetic appearance and a 4-month clinical success without complication. Thus, this technique is a short-term solution for clinics that have limited resources for a definitive treatment.
