When the crown of a tooth is severely damaged or weakened because of a large area of decay, a broken cusp or a root canal procedure, a large filling is more than often not enough to functionally restore the tooth. The tooth is weakened and a crown (metal or porcelain) is then placed. The crown fits over the prepared tooth which restores the shape and integrity of the tooth, making it strong enough for normal function.
A bridge is one or more crowns attached to an additional tooth to bridge together a lost tooth in the dental arch. This can therefore improve appearance, function and prevent the other teeth from shifting in the arch.

Root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, is a procedure carried out when a tooth has been decayed or has a deep filling extending so far that simply replacing the filling would cause the nerve of the tooth to become inflamed and die.
