If your tooth is broken, worn or destroyed by tooth decay but not lost, a crown (also called a cap) can be used to cover the damaged part of your tooth. A crown protects your tooth from further damage. Crowns are cemented over your existing tooth structure to fully cover your natural tooth.
A bridge is used to replace missing teeth to give you better ability to chew. A bridge is a permanent restoration, it is not removable. It helps bridges the gap between permanent teeth and a missing tooth/teeth.
White/tooth colored fillings are an alternative to silver (amalgam) fillings. White fillings are made of a strong composite resin that is matched to the surrounding tooth color. In the past, white fillings were only placed on front teeth, but recently a stronger more durable material has been developed that can withstand the chewing pressure of back teeth.
