Do you have a missing tooth that you have been hiding from people? Our dental office can help you. If you have several missing teeth and it is becoming difficult to eat the foods you enjoy, our dentist will explain how a bridge can restore function to your mouth. We also provide comprehensive exams to make sure that you do not need any fillings. If you catch dental decay early, you may not lose your natural teeth.
What is a Dental Filling?
A filling is a material that fills a hole left by a cavity in your tooth. We like to catch cavities early, so schedule your appointment with us today to take care of any cavities that you may have before they become painful.
What Are Crowns and Bridges?
Crowns for teeth cap broken or damaged teeth to restore the tooth’s original appearance. Bridges replace a missing tooth with a prosthetic tooth that anchors to existing teeth on each side of the gap. Call our office today to discuss your options for restoring a missing tooth or a broken tooth.

How Much Are Dental Fillings, Dental Caps or Bridges?
The costs vary, depending on the materials used and other factors that our dentist will explain to you.
What Materials Can I Choose from for a Tooth Filling?
Our dentist will present you with options based on how large your cavity is, what tooth needs the filling and the tooth filling cost that matches your budget.
What Types of Crowns Are Available?
The most common types of crowns include porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic and gold. Our dentist will assist you with choosing a tooth crown based on several factors, including durability, whether you need a front tooth crown or one for a molar and the dental crown cost.
Are There Different Types of Dental Bridges?
Fixed bridges are attached to the two adjoining teeth, while cantilever bridges are attached to a single adjoining tooth.
How Are Crowns Placed on Teeth?
Your teeth are filed down to make room for a crown and then our dentist will make an impression of the tooth. A crown is then tailored to your specifications at a dental lab. Once your crown arrives, our dentist will cement it onto your tooth and you are ready to go.
How Do I Get a Tooth Bridge?
Our dentist will check your suitability for a tooth bridge. One or two support teeth need to be strong enough to hold the bridge in order for you to be eligible. A model is fabricated for your artificial tooth, called a pontic, and you need to wait for the lab to custom make your pontic. You will have a temporary bridge until your pontic is complete.
Your crown or dental bridge cost is an investment in yourself. Please give us a call to schedule an exam for a tooth filling or to learn more about a restorative procedure.
