How do crowns and bridges act?

Next, impressions which serve as a model will be given to the dental Lab to make crown. The temporary bridge is made from Acrylic to protect your teeth. Final crown is made in a way that has natural form of tooth and you don’t feel any difference in your mouth. After that the crown is adjoined to your teeth by cement in a way that its appearance dos not differ from removed tooth and looks natural.
