Are you looking for a general dentist for dental fillings who can also place a crown or a bridge for you? If so, contact us for an appointment with our dentist who is experienced with both minor and major restorative procedures.
When you have a cavity, our dentist will fill the space with a dental filling to keep bacteria and food particles out of the space. A filling also restores the tooth’s strength and shape.
Both will restore your attractive smile. Crowns cover broken or discolored teeth, while a bridge spans the gap left by a missing tooth.
Our family dentist places crowns and bridges, in addition to performing exams and filling teeth. Call our office today to explore all of the services we can offer you and your family.
If you’re concerned about your dental crown cost or dental bridge cost, please ask our dentist for an estimated price once you have decided upon a restoration and the restoration materials. Our affordable fees make it easy for you to have an attractive smile.
You’ll have a choice between a composite resin (white) filling or an amalgam filling, which contains mercury, silver and other metals. Amalgam fillings are the least expensive; however, they will turn black over time.
There are ceramic crowns, which are often used for front teeth because they are very life like. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns also closely resemble natural teeth and they are very durable, so they are suitable for placement in any location. Gold alloy crowns are the most durable crowns; they are suitable for molars, although some of our patients choose gold crowns to cap front teeth for aesthetic reasons.
You can have a crown placed on your tooth in just two dental office visits. Our dentist will prepare the tooth on the first visit and gather information for the dental lab so they can fabricate a tooth that blends in with your other teeth. You go home with a temporary crown and come back when your permanent crown is finished.
A fixed bridge can replace one or two missing teeth. There is a crown on both sides of the bridge and one or two pontics (prosthetic teeth) in the middle. If you need a front tooth bridge, there may be two crowns on each side. Implant supported bridges, which do not require crowns, are another option.
A traditional bridge takes two dental visits and about a total of four hours. In between visits, you’ll have a temporary bridge to wear while a dental lab fabricates your permanent one. Implant-supported bridges take significantly longer.
When you visit our dental office, our friendly staff is available to address your concerns and answer questions, such as providing an estimate of the tooth filling cost or telling you if we take your dental insurance. Call us to schedule your appointment if you need a tooth filling, tooth bridge or any other dental work.
