Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, caps are advisable but single is best. Joined or bridge has a drawback. If any side of the joined cap is loose or any damage comes, then the whole bridge is removed. In single if one particular tooth or cap has any problem or any damage, then the single cap will be repaired and removed.
