We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
What’s a Tooth Filling?
When a tooth becomes damaged due to decay or trauma, it needs a tooth filling to prevent further damage. If the tooth needs dental caps or a crown, your dentist can install a temporary filling that will last until your permanent crown is ready. If there’s decay, your dentist can clean the decay and then install a permanent filling.
What Are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?
A dental crown is installed atop one or more teeth that have been damaged or are decayed. If a very large filling is needed in one or more teeth, your dentist may install a crown instead. A tooth bridge is sometimes used to anchor a crown and is attached to the adjacent teeth. If you need a crown and bridge in Stockbridge, call our office at (770) 872-0728 to schedule an appointment.
What Kind of Dentist Does Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges?
All of the dentists in our office in Stockbridge can install fillings, crowns, and bridges. The type of dental work you need will depend on the condition of your teeth and your overall oral health. Crowns for teeth, bridges, and fillings all fall under the category of general dentistry and many of our patients require these types of services. Call us today for more information at (770) 872-0728.
How Much Does a Crown, Dental Bridge, or Tooth Filling Cost?
Each patient is unique and their dental needs are unique, so a dental bridge cost, a dental crown cost, or a dental filling cost will vary by the individual. Factors that can affect the final cost include any additional work that needs to be done, the number of x-rays needed, the type of materials used, your overall oral health, and any insurance coverage you may have. Call our office in Stockbridge to schedule an appointment and your dentist will provide you with a cost estimate during your visit.
Are There Different Types of Fillings?
Depending on your needs and the location of your filling, you may be interested in a certain type of filling. Patients with cavities in the front of their mouth might opt for composite fillings as these fillings are tooth-colored and less noticeable. Whichever filling you need, our dentists would be happy to give you more information during your consultation.
What Are the Different Types of Crowns?
You have several options when it comes to the material for your dental crowns. Porcelain crowns, porcelain ceramic crowns, a gold crown tooth, and a front tooth crown are some of your options. Others are available so call our office for more information on your specific needs.
What Are the Different Types of Dental Bridges?
The type of bridge you need will depend on several factors, including the number of teeth that are missing or need to be replaced. You might need a front teeth bridge, a temporary dental bridge, a cantilever dental bridge, or another type of bridge before you receive your permanent dental bridge. Your dentist will make a recommendation for the best type of bridge for your situation during your consultation at our office in Stockbridge.
What’s the Dental Crown Procedure?
When you need a dental crown, your dentist will remove any decayed or damaged areas of your tooth and fabricate a temporary crown. He or she will then make an impression that will be used to make your permanent crown and then install the temporary. When the permanent crown arrives, you’ll return to our office in Stockbridge to have the permanent crown installed. If you need a dental crown, call our office at (770) 872-0728 to schedule an appointment.
What’s the Dental Bridge Procedure?
A dental bridge uses the same procedure as having a dental crown installed. Your dentist will prep the area for the permanent bridge and take impressions, then make a temporary bridge that will last until the permanent one is ready. If you need a tooth crown, a tooth bridge, or any other dental work, call us at (770) 872-0728 to schedule an appointment with one of the dentists in our office in Stockbridge.
