A crown is a dental restoration that covers the tooth and restores its shape, size, and function to its original state. A crown is used to repair teeth that have been damaged or deteriorated to the point that fillings are no longer effective, as well as to improve the aesthetic of the tooth. After root canal treatment, a crown is utilized to seal the tooth and prevent it from fracturing.
A dental bridge is made up of two crowns, one for each side of the gap. Natural teeth or dental implants support dental bridges. Dental bridges, on the other hand, literally bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth.
