Crowns are single units of different materials such as porcelain or ceramic used to restore teeth back to full function and provide customized esthetics.
A bridge is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth and uses the two surrounding teeth for support. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically and uses the same materials and procedures as a dental crown
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for several reasons. You may have a “sunken lip” appearance in the area of a missing tooth or encounter problems with properly chewing and speaking. If a missing tooth is not replaced, the surrounding and opposing teeth begin to drift out of place. This can cause crowding or gaps, as well as significant bite changes that can aggravate TMJ symptoms, cause bone loss, or premature wear. A missing tooth may also be replaced with a dental implant
