Crowns and Bridges are solely responsible for fixing missing or damaged teeth. Crown caps a damaged, weak and decayed tooth and help in maintaining the strength of the teeth. It helps in restoring the basic size, shape, and function of the tooth.
BRIDGES are solely used to replace missing teeth. They have two crowns with one on both ends and a bridge of replacement teeth that rests in the gum area where there is a tooth loss.
The crowns at the ends of a bridge can be fused to the existing teeth or dental implants.

WHY DENTAL BEE FOR CROWNS?
TYPES OF CROWN
Dental Crowns come up in different materials. Some of these are:
Porcelain Crown: These are the most popular type of crowns made entirely of porcelain. They are biocompatible which makes them toxic-free. Due to the material, they give out a natural look though they have to be taken care of.
Metal crowns: One of the most commonly used crowns; these crowns are made of metal mostly gold. It’s the metal that makes them stronger enough to withstand biting and chewing, making them durable. Hence, they last longer.
Ceramic Crowns: If one requires a crown that is as strong as a metal one but with less visibility then a Ceramic crown is the answer. Besides being durable, they blend smoothly against the real tooth, making it unnoticeable. They are more suitable for people wishing for aesthetically looking teeth but are less suitable for molars.
Porcelain-Fused-To-Metal: They are kind of metal crowns but with a more aesthetic look. The inside of this crown is made up of metal while the outer portion is made up of porcelain. This material helps in matching with the color of the teeth making it appear natural. Moreover, they are less costly.
