Are your teeth damaged due to injury or decay? If so, you may need to visit a dentist for restorative treatment. Dentists use tooth fillings, crowns, and bridges to restore decayed or broken teeth to their natural look and function.
A dental filling repairs a tooth that has been damaged by cavities. This restores the tooth to its natural state. Dentists place fillings by first removing the decay, leaving a clean hole for the filling material. The filling may be created with gold, porcelain, composite resin, or other durable materials.
Both tooth crowns and bridges are fixed dental appliances. While some restorative devices can be removed daily, crowns for teeth and bridges are secured onto existing teeth or dental implants. Crowns serve as dental caps for teeth, covering the damaged tooth from top to bottom. On the other hand, a tooth bridge is a replacement for one or more teeth. Replacing your teeth is important, as failing to do so can result in jaw complications. If you have damaged or missing teeth, give us a call to explore your treatment options.
If you’ve been searching for affordable restorative dentistry, look no further than our general dental practice. We provide fillings, crowns, bridges, and other appliances that will improve your smile’s health and appearance.
Fillings, crowns, and bridges are fully customized dental appliances, and because of this, the cost varies from patient to patient. The materials used to fabricate the appliance, the complexity of the placement, and the number of follow-up visits will determine your final charges. Some insurance plans offer partial coverage for restorative procedures if they are deemed medically necessary. For more information about the tooth filling, bridge, or dental crown cost, contact our office today.
Our dentists provide many options for those receiving a tooth filling. The different type of fillings include silver amalgam, gold, natural-colored composite, porcelain, and glass. Your insurance coverage and aesthetic preferences will determine what type of filling you choose as well as the tooth filling cost.
There are four different types of crowns, each with different advantages. These include:
Like crowns and fillings, permanent dental bridges are also available in different styles. Your dentist will help you determine which of these two types best suits your needs:
Getting a new crown usually takes place over two appointments. During your first visit, our dentist will shape the affected tooth, taking impressions to ensure a perfectly fitting crown. A temporary crown will be affixed in the mouth to protect your tooth while the final crown is fabricated. When the permanent crown arrives, you’ll return to our office to have the device cemented in place. You’ll then enjoy the benefits of a healthier, restored smile.
If you are receiving a dental bridge, you’ll likely visit our practice twice. The first appointment involves recontouring the supporting teeth, which allows them to accommodate dental crowns. The dentist also will take impressions of the area to serve as a blueprint for the finished bridge and pontic teeth. Our dentist will provide you with a temporary bridge to wear while the final device is created – this process usually takes a few weeks. At your next visit, the dentist will fit the permanent bridge and make any necessary adjustments. Please contact us if you have any additional questions about the procedure for bridges or the dental bridge cost.
