Do you have a cavity, a damaged tooth or missing teeth? Our dentists can fix a painful cavity, provide a crown for a broken tooth or a bridge for multiple missing teeth. You don’t have to live with a missing or broken tooth, not with our affordable fees. Call us to schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving you.

Are Dental Fillings Used to Fix Decay?

A tooth filling fills a cavity in a tooth, preventing further decay and strengthening the tooth. Filling material can be used to repair a cracked tooth as well. More than 90 percent of adults have at least one filling in their mouth, so you are not alone if you have been looking for a qualified dentist to fill as cavity.

What is the Difference Between a Tooth Crown and a Tooth Bridge?

A crown is a fixed restoration, typically resembling a natural tooth, that caps a damaged or discolored tooth. A bridge is one or more prosthetic teeth that are supported by the neighboring teeth or by an implant.

Do Family Dentists Place Crowns for Teeth and Dental Bridges as Well as Fillings?

Our family dentist is experienced with all types of restorations. You can get a crown or a bridge in the comfort of our office all without having to visit a specialist dentist. Contact us to arrange an appointment today to learn more about your options.

How Much Will I Pay for a Tooth Filling, Crown or Bridge?

Your tooth filling cost and your dental crown cost will depend on the material that you choose, among other factors. Your dental bridge cost also depends on the tooth material and the type of bridge, as well as how many teeth the bridge replaces. Call us to schedule an appointment and after your examination, our dentist will be able to provide an estimate. If you have dental insurance, please let us know so we can check your coverage.

What Tooth Filling Material is Available?

The two most common types of fillings are traditional amalgam fillings made from mercury, zinc, copper, silver and tin, and tooth colored composite fillings. Amalgam is the most affordable of the two options.

What are the Different Types of Dental Caps?

  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal
  • Ceramic
  • Gold alloy
  • Base metal alloy

Base metal and gold alloy crowns are very strong; if you have a heavy bite, these are ideal crowns for molars. Porcelain-fused-to-metal and ceramic crowns have the advantage of matching the appearance of natural teeth. Our dentist will help you choose the crown material that is right for you.

What is the Dental Crown Procedure?

First, our dentist takes an impression of your tooth so the lab can fabricate a life-like tooth. The tooth is filed down and a temporary crown is put in place. You’ll come back when your permanent crown is ready.

What Type of Bridge Would Help Preserve My Jawbone?

The most common type of bridge is the traditional tooth bridge, which our dentist bonds to the adjacent crowned teeth. Our dentist will use a cantilever bridge when there is only one natural tooth next to the gap. Implant supported bridges do not attach to natural teeth, they are held in place by an implant, which helps preserve the jawbone.

What is the Dental Bridge Procedure?

The dental bridge procedure is very similar to the crown procedure, since traditional bridges are supported by crowns. You’ll have a temporary bridge to wear until the lab fabricates your permanent one. With an implant-supported bridge, you’ll need one implant for each missing tooth.

When you need a restoration, such as a filling, a tooth crown or a bridge, our dental office is here to serve you. Give us a call to schedule your appointment today.
