A crown, or sometimes called a cap, is a single fixed prosthesis that can either be cemented over a natural tooth and cemented or screwed onto an implant. It is used to strengthen a natural tooth or replace a single missing tooth in conjunction with an implant.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is a fixed prosthesis cemented to teeth and cemented or screwed onto implants.
A denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces all of your teeth.
