In some cases, there are several options for treatment. For example, when a patient loses a tooth due to decay or trauma, he or she can choose between implants, dentures, and bridge and crown appliances to replace that missing tooth. While implants and dentures are widely understood, many patients are not as familiar with bridges. A bridge replaces a missing tooth by using the teeth on both sides for support. Bridges are an effective solution, providing the necessary support, function, and aesthetic appearance for patients who have lost a tooth.

In addition to being used with bridges, crowns can be used alone to provide strength to a tooth that is weak or to rebuild a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma. Crowns can be made from metal or porcelain. Metal, even gold alloy, crowns are often used in the back of the mouth where they're not visible. On the other hand, crowns that are covering the front teeth are made from porcelain so that it looks like a natural tooth.
