Q: I had a bridge completed just two years ago which now I am told has to be redone due decay underneath? Why would this happen and how do you prevent this?

You might remember I am a car guy, as a hobby, not as in I am half car, half human like a Mo-taur. (I can’t stand those insurance commercials by the way. I would go out of my way just to not use that company.)
I don’t like this fad of matte finish paint jobs on cars. Who invests tens of thousands of dollars and then asks for a dull looking finish? It’s like building a home and telling the builder: “Hey. Don’t bother painting the house, just leave the gray concrete block exposed; we’re going with that industrial chic look. “
I also don’t like this business of new cars having an iPad jutting out of the dashboard. Why are we mixing home appliances with automobiles? What’ next, a blender on the dash to make smoothies?
In order to prevent decay from seeping in under crowns or bridges, a super accurate final impression must be made. Otherwise gaps will form allowing the cement to wash out, allowing the teeth to rot underneath. Here is how we prevent this:
