Crowns and Bridges
There are a few different treatment options your dental professional may suggest. These include crowns and bridges.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It is used to strengthen and protect your tooth structure.
Most crowns are made of a hard, white substance to help them look natural.
A dental bridge covers or "bridges" the gap between missing teeth.
After you lose a tooth, your dentist may suggest that you get a bridge. A bridge can keep your other teeth from moving out of place.
Once a bridge is placed, it works just like your natural teeth.
