*A dental crown or bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace damaged or missing teeth.*
Crowns – also known as caps – are fixed over the surfaces of natural tooth structures or dental implants. While bridges are used to fill in the spaces left by missing teeth and are anchored in place by the natural teeth or crowns nearest the empty space. Both crowns and bridges are non-removable and must be cemented in place by a licensed dentist. Patients who get crowns or bridges to restore their smiles achieve both the function and appearance of natural, healthy teeth.
