What is a Crown?
Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth and to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth. They are cemented over the existing tooth and are made generally from porcelain, gold alloy or acrylic materials.
What is a Bridge?
A bridge replaces missing teeth by using existing teeth to support new artificial teeth.
Two crowns are attached to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth and a false tooth is rigidly attached between them.
Bridges are made from metal, gold, porcelain or a combination of these materials.
