A tooth filling is needed to repair a tooth that’s damaged by decay. After numbing the area, your dentist removes all decayed portions of the tooth and then uses filling material to restore the rest of the tooth.
A dental bridge is a device used to fill in the space where one or more teeth are missing. Dental caps, commonly called dental crowns, are used to cover a damaged tooth, and they can also be used to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a dental implant.
Once it’s determined that you need a filling, crown, or dental bridge work, treatment can be provided by a general or family dentist. A specialist called a prosthodontist usually performs crowns and bridges that are more complex. Whether you need a filling or are interested in bridge work or crowns, our dentists will provide quality care. Call us today to make an appointment.
The cost for treatment can vary for every patient, whether you need a crown, filling, or dental bridge. Tooth filling cost is determined by the type of filling you receive and your insurance coverage. Your dental crown cost is affected by the materials used to create the crown, your insurance coverage, and if other dental work is required to complete the restoration. Your dental insurance, the materials used to make the bridge, and the overall health of your teeth will determine your dental bridge cost.
Our dentists offer many different tooth filling options to treat tooth decay, such as gold, glass, porcelain, natural-colored composite, and silver amalgam. Your aesthetic preferences and insurance coverage are factors that influence what type of filling you receive.
At our dental practice, you can choose from a variety of materials for your crowns for teeth procedure, such as porcelain-fused-to-metal, metal alloy, gold alloy, and porcelain. Our dentists can help you decide which tooth crown material is right for you. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
The different types of tooth bridges you can receive at our dental practice include a cantilever bridge, implant-supported bridge, or fixed bridge. To learn how you can improve your smile with a tooth bridge and to receive a custom treatment plan, schedule an appointment today.
For the first step of the tooth crown procedure, your dentist prepares the affected tooth by reshaping it to make room for the crown. After the appropriate shape has been achieved, an impression of the tooth is taken, which is sent to a dental laboratory to create a custom-made crown. While the permanent crown is being created, a temporary crown is cemented into place to protect the tooth. To complete the restoration, the temporary crown is replaced with the permanent crown.
Before you can receive a tooth bridge, the teeth that provide support for the bridge must be shaped. Once this is completed, your dentist takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to a dental laboratory, which is where your permanent bridge will be manufactured. While you wait for the permanent bridge, you’ll wear a temporary one to protect your teeth and gums from damage. When the permanent bridge is ready, the temporary is removed, and the new bridge is fitted and cemented over your teeth.
