What is a Cavity Filling?
A tooth filling is a restoration that mends a tooth after our dentist removes dental decay. Fillings prevent future tooth loss as well, so call our office to schedule your preventative exam today.
What Are the Benefits of Crowns for Teeth and Dental Bridges?
Both crowns and bridges are restorative procedures that enhance your smile’s appearance and help you to speak and chew properly. A tooth crown reconstructs a damaged tooth, while a bridge is a solution for a missing tooth.
Do I Need to Visit a Different Type of Dentist for a Crown or a Tooth Bridge?
At our general dental office, we furnish a wide scope of services so our patients can stay with a dentist who is familiar to them. If you need dental care or you want to discuss your options for a more pleasing smile, call us today to schedule an appointment.
How Much Will My Dental Crown Cost?
There are variables that affect your dental bridge cost or your tooth filling cost. Therefore, prices vary from patient to patient. Our dentist will give you an estimate of your final cost while discussing your options for a tooth filling, crown or bridge.
What Types of Dental Fillings Are Used Today?
The silvered colored amalgam fillings that your parents and grandparents have are still in use today because they are durable and economical. Tooth-colored composite fillings have greatly improved, and they are durable as well as aesthetically pleasing.
How Many Different Materials Are Used for Tooth Crowns?
We offer porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic and gold crowns. If you are considering a tooth crown, call our office to schedule an appointment with our dentist who will be happy to help you decide which is the best material for you.
How Are Crowns Placed on Teeth?
Crowns are also called dental caps because they are literally caps for teeth. Our dentist will prepare your broken or damaged tooth to remove any decay and to make room for the new crown. Our dentist will make a mold to send to the lab that will create your crown and then he or she will place a temporary crown on your tooth until your customized crown is ready. The final step is to have the permanent crown cemented onto your tooth.
How Many Different Types of Fixed Bridges Are There?
The most common bridge is the traditional one, which dentists attach to the two teeth on either side of the hole left by a tooth that fell out, was knocked out or that was extracted. When there is only one tooth capable of being an anchor, dentists use cantilever bridges.
What is the Tooth Bridge Procedure
No matter which type of bridge our dentist suggests, at least one tooth has to be prepared to hold the bridge. If you are getting a traditional bridge, our dentist will have to size the teeth to ensure there is enough room for the bridge tooth. Next, a mold is made so the lab can make the tooth. You may also want to wear a temporary bridge until your next appointment. On the second visit, our dentist will permanently secure the bridge containing your new tooth.
Our goal is to make you feel comfortable with our services so that you never hesitate to schedule regular exams or discuss solutions for problem teeth with the dentist. Call us for an appointment to get started on your great smile today.
