Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over teeth for covering and restoring the shape, size, strength, and appearance of the tooth. Once in place, crowns completely encase the visible part of the tooth situated at and above the gum line.
Crowns may be for any of the following:
Protection of weak teeth from breaking, or holding together parts of a cracked tooth
Restoring already broken teeth or very worn down teeth
Covering and supporting teeth that have large fillings and not a lot of tooth left
Securing dental bridges
Covering malformed or discolored teeth

As the name suggests, dental bridges bridge gaps made by one or more missing teeth. Bridges contain two or more crowns for the teeth next to the gap – these anchoring teeth are known as abutment teeth – and false teeth between. These false teeth are known as pontics, which are made from either gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination thereof. Natural teeth or implants provide support to dental bridges.
