What is a crown?

Dental crown

A crown is used to encase a damaged tooth in order to preserve its strength and integrity. You may need a crown if:
– your tooth is damaged due to decay (cavity)
– your tooth is cracked or chipped
– your tooth is weak or worn down
– your tooth is severely stained
– you’ve had a root canal

What is a bridge?

Dental bridge

A bridge is used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. To create a bridge, a fake tooth (pontic) is supported by crowning your adjacent teeth. Your bridge will look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. Your bridge will be fixed in place with dental cement, so it will be important for you to clean underneath your bridge to maintain the health of the supporting teeth. 

Denturespartials, and dental implants are other alternatives to replace missing teeth. Learn more about the pros and cons of bridges and your other options here.
