A crown (or cap) completely covers the entire surface of a tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown adds protection and strength to tooth structure not provided by fillings or other types of restorations. There are several types of materials used in fabricating crowns, however the tooth colored materials are the most popular.
A dental bridge is a fixed, non removable prosthesis for replacing missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. Your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case with you. Traditional bridges are the most popular and are usually made of porcelain fused to metal. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that are placed over the anchoring teeth, with attached artificial teeth, filling the gap left behind by one or more missing teeth.
