Having damaged teeth by either having a crack or the tooth being weak resulting in breakages can be very detrimental. Many times, one risks losing the tooth. Dentists have come up with Dental Crown and Bridge, which are intended to bring back the tooth size, shape, and strengthen it to give you back your glowing appearance.
An artificial dental crown is a cap shaped like teeth that is cemented on broken teeth to cover the visible part of it, so wrap inside a damaged tooth. Dental crowns protect the damaged teeth from more damage and makes it stronger and maintain its natural shape. The bridge on the other side as the name suggests are used to cover the gap by strengthening their teeth in between two natural teeth or implants so that it fills the space.
