What Is the Function of a Tooth Filling?
A dental filling is used to reshape, repair, and reinforce a tooth that has been damaged by decay, injury, or excessive wear. During the process, the dentist removes the affected portion of the tooth, cleaning out any debris or decay, and filling the resulting hole with one of several filling materials. The process is performed using a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort.
What Types of Dental Fillings Do Your Dentists Provide?
We offer a variety of fillings to suit patients of all needs and budgets. Our most popular filling options include gold, traditional amalgam, porcelain, and composite resin. Your dentist will go over your filling options following your initial consultation.
How Much Do You Charge for a Tooth Filling?
The type of material used, the difficulty of your dental situation, and the amount covered by your insurance will determine your tooth filling cost. We will go over cost and payment options in greater detail once you and your dentist have decided on a treatment plan.
Will I Need a Tooth Crown or a Tooth Bridge?
If your issue is a tooth that has been heavily damaged or weakened by decay or injury, a crown may be the right restoration option for you. A crown, also known as a cap, covers the total surface of the tooth and is permanently bonded in place. A dentist may recommend a bridge if you have one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is made up of one or more artificial teeth designed to fill the gap left by missing teeth. The device is held in place by implant posts or adjacent abutment teeth.
What Types of Dental Caps Do Your Dentists Provide?
We provide crowns made from a durable gold alloy as well as modern, tooth-colored porcelain and ceramic for patients who want a natural-looking restoration. Your dentist will help you choose a crown that best meets your budget and dental needs.
What Is It Like Getting Crowns for Teeth?
A crown restoration involves a series of steps. The initial visit entails making a mold for the lab to use when creating your permanent crown, prepping the affected tooth, and attaching a temporary crown. The second visit involves bonding the permanent crown in place using dental cement. Each step takes approximately half an hour to an hour to complete.
How Much Do You Charge for a Tooth Crown?
If you have dental insurance, there is a good chance that at least part of your dental crown cost will be covered. Your price will be based on the materials used and the complexity of your dental issue. We do offer payment plans to help manage any out-of-pocket expenses.
What Is the Function of Dental Bridges?
Bridges are designed to restore normal tooth appearance and function following tooth loss. We offer several bridge styles to address different types of issues. Implant-supported bridges feature crowns attached to posts embedded into the jaw and offer the most natural look and function. Traditional bridges feature a row of pontic teeth that span the affected area and attach to abutment teeth on either side. A cantilevered bridge is used when it is only possible to attach the appliance on one side.
What Is It Like Getting a Tooth Bridge?
To give you the best possible look and fit, the dentist will make a mold of your teeth that will be used to create your bridge and prep the existing tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel. We will also provide you with a temporary bridge to wear until the permanent device is ready. During your second visit, the dentist will secure the permanent bridge in place and make any minor adjustments that may be needed for comfort and fit.
How Much Will My Dental Bridge Cost?
Each bridge is custom-made, so the cost varies from patient to patient. We will give you an estimate following your consultation and go over your payment options. If you have private or employer-sponsored dental insurance, all or part of your cost may be covered. We suggest that you contact your insurance carrier before your appointment to learn more about your plan’s benefits and limitations.
