Tooth restoration is a tricky business, made even more so by the wealth of options you have to choose from. If you need a tooth replaced, for instance, you can get a crown, implant, or if the damage isn’t too severe, dental bonding may fix the issue.

That makes picking a restoration option, even with the advice of Dr. Cameron Blyth, DDS and Dr. Joshua Dorris, DMD, a personal – and sometimes difficult – choice. So to help speed up the process for you, our team here at Merrill Ranch Family Dental Center in Florence, Arizona, put this post together that details the benefits of crowns and bridges, two of the most popular dental restoration options that exist.


If your teeth are chipped, ground down, or the biting surface is otherwise harmed, a crown can restore it to like-new condition. A crown is simply a cap that sits over the damaged portion of your teeth and is cemented into place.


When you have multiple teeth in a row that need attention, a bridge is likely your best option. Bridges are comprised of a series of crowns that restore the function, feel, and look of damaged teeth.
