A crown may be the right choice for you if you need to restore and protect a tooth that is misshaped, decayed, severely discolored, worn, cracked, or broken. Crowns are also used to cover a dental implant or hold a dental bridge in place.
A bridge may be a good choice for you if you have one or more missing teeth that are surrounded by healthy teeth on either side. The bridge itself is a custom-made device with porcelain or metal teeth that are attached together to fill the gap left by missing teeth. Bridges are permanently cemented onto the adjacent teeth. Most bridges have a standard life of 10-20 years if they are properly cared for.
