The crowning of a tooth is performed when tooth damage is too great that the stability of the tooth is not guaranteed to be restored with a filling. The crown restores the tooth to full function and form. A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. The simple bridge consists of two anchoring teeth, also known as the abutment teeth, and an artificial tooth that replaces the missing tooth.
Full and partial dentures are used to restore the natural appearance of the face and mouth while restoring chewing function of the patient. Full dentures are made to replace all teeth. Partial dentures also prevent movement of the reaming teeth.
