Dental crowns are custom made and fit over the natural tooth of a patient, which has been prepared.
It is used as a replacement of the crown structure of the natural tooth, which is the part of the tooth that is above the gums.
Dental crowns improve the aesthetic appearance of a patient’s teeth. But they also adapt to the natural biting forces which allows them to add durability, stability, and strength.
Bridges most common use is for replacing a missing tooth (or teeth). They are cemented to the natural tooth in a way which surrounds the empty space.
Before a bridge is placed, the natural tooth must first be prepared by a dentist.
