Click on the appropriate link below to learn about dental crowns and bridges. A crown is a restoration for a single tooth that covers the entire tooth. A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. (It’s not the only option for replacing a missing tooth – for other choices, please see our page on missing teeth.) Complete dentures or implant-supported dentures are used when there are no teeth present.
