What is the difference between bridge and crown?

Resolved Question:

What is the difference between bridge and crown?

The crown is a permanent dental restoration which is put on a single tooth that has been properly prepared.
A dental bridge is also a permanent restoration but it used to restore a missing tooth or teeth, with typically two crowns on each end and false tooth or teeth (called abutment(s)) to restore your occlusion.
