Crown and Bridgs

are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist or prosthodontist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you're missing one or more teeth. 

What is the difference between a crown and a bridge?
... Essentially, a crown is a cap used to restore a tooth to its original appearance and prevent further damage or decay. A bridge, unlike a crown, utilizes existing teeth to fill in an area left vacant by a missing tooth.

What is a dental bridge?
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -- these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth -- and a false tooth/teeth in between. ... Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

What are the different types of dental crowns?
There are four different types of materials used for dental crowns:
All ceramic (porcelain-based).
Porcelain fused to metal.
Gold alloys.
Base metal alloys.
