A crown is a cover for a tooth which is decayed, damaged or has had recurrent fillings. A crown is usually made of porcelain (tooth colored), metal alloys or gold.
Bridges are used as tooth substitutes which are attached to neighboring natural teeth. To secure a bridge, both the surrounding tissue and bone of the adjacent teeth must be healthy.
The bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth which are placed between crowns and fixed over the natural neighboring teeth.
