A crown or "cap" covers the entire surface of a damaged tooth. It improves its appearance, shape or alignment as well. It may be placed on an implant too to give a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Materials used to make a crown include—porcelain, ceramic, gold and metal alloys, and acrylic. Crowns made of porcelain or ceramic match the color of your natural teeth.
A bridge allows the dentist to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. Bridges may be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They fill the space of the missing teeth. The bridge is attached or cemented to the existing natural teeth or implants around the unfilled space of the missing tooth/teeth. Several different material are used to make bridges. Your dentist may advice you the material based on the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Bridges made of porcelain or ceramic match the color of your natural teeth.
