What is the difference between a crown and a bridge?

A crown is a covering over a single tooth.  A bridge replaces missing teeth by having two or more crowned teeth connect to missing teeth. Both of these options stay fixed in the mouth. Oftentimes a crown is placed to protect a tooth too weak to support itself.  Other times it may be placed for cosmetic purposes to reshape or change the color of a tooth.
