You’ve probably heard of dental crowns and dental bridges. Perhaps your brother had a crown or “cap” placed after suffering a huge cavity. Or your aunt’s dental bridge was the talk of Thanksgiving dinner. But what are dental crowns and bridges? What’s the difference?
Both are important tools in restorative dentistry, but they have different uses. A dental crown is often used to strengthen or support a damaged tooth. A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth.
