A crown is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth it improves the appearance, shape or alignment as well as restores the function of the tooth.  a bridge is recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space A bridge stabilizes the bite of a patient who is missing one or more teeth. Dental bridges prevent the surrounding teeth from moving or shifting in the mouth. A missing tooth that is not replaced may cause surrounding teeth to become unstable and require removal, or make the teeth harder to clean, compromising oral health or change the shape of a face and diminish the beauty of a smile. Unlike partial dentures, bridges are permanent; patients cannot remove them.
