Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that can be placed over your tooth. Think of it like a snug hat for your tooth. The crown restores the tooth's shape, size, strength and appearance. The dental crown is cemented into place on your tooth and it covers the visible portion of the tooth.
A dental bridge is a commonly used dental device that consists of one or more artificial teeth made from resin or porcelain that replaces missing natural teeth. Often referred to as a filler, false teeth, or a partial denture, a bridge is connected to crowns that anchor the device to natural teeth.
