Often when a tooth has been damaged by a cavity or large filling, or has had a Root Canal, it needs a crown to strengthen it. A crown, sometimes called a cap, is a custom-fit covering that is made to fit only your tooth. It will extend the life of a severely damaged tooth and is permanently bonded to your tooth.
Similar to a crown, a bridge is a custom-fit appliance which is bonded to your teeth. It is used to replace a missing tooth.
