A crown is a cap that your dentist can place over a tooth to protect it.
A crown restores a tooth’s shape, size, and function after it has been injured or lost. A crown may both protect and enhance the appearance of a tooth.
A dental bridge is a type of prosthetic tooth that is used to replace lost teeth permanently. The teeth on each side of the gap are joined to the bridge. Porcelain, metal, a combination of the two, or zirconia are the most common materials used for bridges. They are set in situ and can be used instead of dentures for some persons.
