Crown and Bridge
If a tooth is extremely damaged as a result of decay or trauma, a crown may be used to restore its appearance and strength.

A dental bridge is a permanent, non-removable restoration used to replace missing teeth in a patient’s mouth by using the adjacent teeth as support. A dental bridge usually consists of two crowns with a false tooth “bridged” between. The crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap for strength and stability. Other options for replacing missing teeth include partial dentures and dental implants.
