Crowns (Caps) or Bridges
Crowns and bridges are commonly used to restore damaged, lost, or decayed teeth — teeth with more filling than tooth, damage resulting from decay, or visible cracks or chips. Crowns cover the entire tooth above the gum line, and give patients the look and feel of a natural tooth.
A dental bridge serves as a permanent replacement for missing or damaged teeth. These restorations are bonded onto the adjacent tooth or teeth and are referred to as a bridge, as opposed to the replacement of missing teeth with a removable partial denture.
