DENTAL CROWNS & BRIDGES: If your teeth are chipped, cracked or broken then you may need dental crowns or bridges, which are natural-looking dental restorations that cover your damaged tooth (or teeth) securely and protect them from any further damage.
DENTURES: Dentures are worn over the gums in cases where you have too many missing teeth for crowns or bridges. It makes more sense to have dentures, which can provide you with many, or even a full set, of replacements. This restores your smile and helps you regain much of the function you lost.
