Dental bridges and crowns are a way to restore your teeth if they are damaged or completely missing.
Crowns, specifically, are permanently bonded to either your teeth or dental implants. They are made from a material called zirconia and are meant to look natural and blend in with your own teeth. Typically, they are used to cover teeth or cap them, after becoming cracked or damaged. They are also used to restore implants or cover teeth after you get a root canal.
Bridges are quite literally meant to bridge the gap between missing teeth. Plus, they help keep the natural shape of your face. They are used in place of implants, and while they’re not quite as strong, they are a good alternative if your bone cannot support implants.
