Crowns - A crown is an artificial cover used to replace missing portions of teeth. The crown "caps" a tooth in order to restore or improve the shape, size and appearance of the tooth. Crowns are becoming increasingly important in cosmetic dentistry where they may be used to cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth.
Bridges - Bridges may be described as mountings for artificial teeth that are attached at each end to the natural teeth; they can be used to replace one or more teeth. When missing teeth are replaced with a bridge, the adjacent teeth require crowns in order to support the replacement teeth.
