Your teeth are composed of two main parts, the crown and the gum. The crown is the part visible above the gum. The root is the part below the gum that holds your tooth firmly in your jawbone. If the crown of your tooth becomes weakened by decay or fractures or if it is stained or uneven, it can be restored and strengthened by an artificial crown.
A bridge is an artificial tooth used to replace one that is missing. It is attached to your neighboring teeth. One of the benefits of using a bridge to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) is how natural it looks and feels. With proper care, bridges can last for years.
