A crown or 'cap' is a restorative dental care treatment that completely covers the visible part of your tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, or when a tooth has had endodontic therapy, or 'root canal'. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth.

A bridge may be used to replace missing tooth by ‘bridging’ the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The success of any bridge depends on its foundation – the other teeth, gums, and bone to which it is attached. Therefore it is very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.
