|Advantages of bridges
A bridge is a fixture used to replace missing teeth. While removable bridges are available, most bridges are permanent or 'fixed.' They can be used to replace one tooth or nearly all the teeth in your mouth, thus having both functional and aesthetic importance.
|Advantages of crowns
A crown is a cap that's used in order to help restore or hold together a tooth that has been chipped or damaged. Crowns can also cover a large filling to help keep it in place, and they can protect a tooth recovering from a root canal.
In addition to serving different functions, crowns and bridges also vary in cost. Crowns are moderately priced because the installation of a crown is relatively simple and it only affects one tooth.
|Insurance coverage for crowns and bridges
Insurance coverage for crowns and bridges varies in regard to the different types of dental policies available. The average policy won't cover pre-existing conditions, but will cover at least 50 percent of the total cost.
