Crowns and bridges are popular types of dental restorations. They belong to the family of fixed prosthetic restorations, and are cemented onto implants or teeth. A crowns is a “cap” that covers teeth that are severely sensitive, cracked, broken, discolored, have large fillings, or have had a root canal. They reproduce the shape of natural teeth, strengthen and protect them from future decay.
A dental bridge is a good way to quickly replace one and more missing teeth without wearing dentures or undergoing surgery. The new tooth is held in place by two crowns. The best features of fixed dental bridges are that they are cemented in place (so they do not come out) and they look very natural.
