A dental crown, or commonly referred to as a dental cap, is a form of dental restoration that is utilized for covering a damaged tooth and protect the tooth from breaking.
A crown is cemented permanently onto the tooth structure which fully covers the part of the tooth which lies above the gum line. A dental crown is often used by a dentist due to its excellent results for creating a strong dental restoration. Additionally, dental crowns aesthetically enhance your smile!
A dental bridge, commonly referred to as a fixed dental bridge, is a prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth, which is attached between dental crowns. A dental bridge is cemented permanently in place and held in place by your teeth, thus, being non-removable.
