A dental crown is a fixed cap that fits over your tooth. This provides your tooth with a strong, durable, and natural looking surface. Crowns are particularly useful when a tooth is broken down or decayed, or is brittle following previous dental treatment.
A dental bridge is a useful option to close gaps between teeth. The gap may be the result of a missing tooth, or following a tooth extraction. Dental crowns are placed on both teeth on either side of the gap. These crowns provide both strength and support for the bridge. A fixed tooth is joined in between the crowns in order to bridge the gap.
