Why Would I Need to Get a Tooth Filling?
If one or more of your teeth have decayed areas or have been damaged, you might need a tooth filling. A filling can restore functionality to your tooth and reduce pain and inflammation. Call our office at (813) 438-3943 to learn more or schedule an appointment.
Are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges Used to Correct Damaged Teeth?
A dental crown is installed on a tooth that has an area too large for a filling or that has extensive damage. A dental bridge can anchor one or more teeth to the adjacent teeth to provide the artificial teeth with a stable base. All of these procedures are performed in our office in Lutz, so call us today at (813) 438-3943 to set up a consultation.
Do All Dentists Install Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges?
Bridges, crowns, and fillings are all considered general dentistry and can be performed by any of the skilled dentists in our office in Lutz. Our dentists are proficient in the placement of dental devices and the filling of cavities, so call us at (813) 438-3943 to schedule an appointment or for more information.
What’s the Average Dental Crown Cost, Dental Bridge Cost, or Tooth Filling Cost?
The cost of each procedure will be unique to the patient and will depend on several factors. The extent of work that’s needed, the materials used, the number of x-rays needed, and any insurance benefits will all play a part in determining your final cost. Your dentist will provide you with a detailed cost estimate for your work during your initial consultation at our office in Lutz. Call us today at (813) 438-3943 for more information.
Can I Choose from Different Types of Fillings?
While you won’t know what type of filling you need until you come into our office for a consultation, there are various types of fillings available. You will be able to choose the best option for your situation depending on the location and size of the cavity and your insurance coverage.
What Type of Crown Should I Get?
The type of crown you need will depend on the location of the crown as well as the number of teeth involved. You might need a porcelain ceramic crown, a gold crown or a front tooth crown. Your dentist will recommend the best type of crown for your needs during your visit to our office in Lutz. Call us at (813) 438-3943 to schedule your consultation.
What Type of Dental Bridges Do I Need?
Your unique needs will determine the type of tooth bridge that you need. Factors that will influence it include the location and number of teeth involved, your insurance coverage, the materials used, and your overall oral health. Your dentist in Lutz will recommend the best tooth bridge for your unique situation and provide you with a cost estimate during your visit. Call us today at (813) 438-3943 for more information.
What Happens During the Dental Crown Procedure?
When you come into our office for a dental crown, your dentist in Lutz will examine the area, and then clean and prep it before taking an impression. The impression will be used to fabricate your permanent crown. He or she will install a temporary crown and when your permanent crown arrives in our office, you’ll return for the installation. We try to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during this procedure but call us at (813) 438-3943 if you have additional questions.
What Happens During the Dental Bridge Procedure?
Installing a dental bridge follows the same steps as installing a dental crown. Your dentist will prep the area, make an impression, order your permanent bridge, install a temporary bridge, and install the permanent bridge when it arrives in our office. Whether you need dental caps, a tooth crown, dental crowns for teeth, or any other dental work, call us at (813) 438-3943 and we’ll gladly answer all your questions.
