A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover it and restore its shape and size, strength, and to improve its appearance. When cemented into place, the crown will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth at and above the gum line.
A small titanium screw is placed into the jawbone to replace a missing natural tooth root. Once it has firmly integrated with the jawbone a replacement tooth can be attached to fill the gap created by the missing tooth.
bridges are used to fill in gaps where one or more teeth are missing. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration joining an artificial tooth or teeth to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
