A Crown is an application used to repair a badly-broken or damaged tooth without the need for removal or dental implantation. Essentially, a crown is a cap used to restore a tooth to its original appearance and prevent further damage or decay.
A Bridge unlike a crown, utilizes existing teeth to fill in an area left vacant by a missing tooth. This method anchors a prosthetic tooth into the gap with the two adjacent teeth to establish symmetry and create a natural-looking appearance.
Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist or prosthodontist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.
BENEFITS OF BRIDGES & CROWNS In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.
