What is the difference between a crown and a bridge?

Dental crowns and bridges are natural-looking restorations that revive your smile’s look, feel, and function.

If you have a broken, decayed, or missing tooth, your Sarasota dentist may recommend a dental crown to preserve your tooth structure.

A dental bridge replaces missing teeth. 

Dental Crowns in Sarasota Restore Damaged Teeth and More 

A dental crown is a custom-made tooth cover that matches your smile. It looks like a natural tooth but has a variety of practical uses, including:

  • Restoring a damaged tooth
  • Concealing tooth flaws
  • Topping a dental implant
  • Connecting a dental bridge to healthy teeth

Dental Bridges “Bridge” the Gap

A dental bridge is one or two restoring teeth cemented between dental crowns. The crowns cap the healthy teeth to the left and right of your smile gap. This method forces the restoring teeth to fill the space, thereby bridging the gap in your smile. 

Like dental crowns, bridges are always customized to fit your mouth and match your natural teeth.
