What is a Dental Filling?

A dental filling is used to restore functionality to a tooth that has been damaged by decay, disease, or trauma. A tooth filling is a different solution from a tooth bridge or a tooth crown, and it also helps prevent additional damage that can occur from disease or decay. If you need a dental filling in Western Massachusetts, call our office and let us schedule an appointment for you.

What’s the Purpose of Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?

Does a Special Dentist Do Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges?

Most of our general dentists are qualified to install fillings, crowns, and bridges and many are trained in specialties, such as orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and so forth. If you need dental work in Western Massachusetts, call us for more information.

How Much Does a Filling, Crowns for Teeth, or Dental Bridge Cost?

Our dental office in Western Massachusetts understands that there are varying circumstances for every customer, that is why we can not give a cost estimate until after a consultation. A dental crown cost usually depends on the material used and the number of teeth that need to be crowned. Similarly, the dental bridge cost will fluctuate based on those factor. Finally, the tooth filling cost will vary based on the material chosen, the number of teeth that need to be filled and if any other dental work is required. Additional treatments are available so call our office in Western Massachusetts for more information on costs specific to your circumstances.

What Should I know About the Dental Crown Procedure?

The procedure for installing a dental crown will require two visits to our office. On the first visit, we’ll conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and prepare the tooth or teeth that are to receive a crown. Then we’ll make impressions and take measurements so that your permanent crown will fit properly, then we’ll install a temporary crown.

On your second visit, we’ll remove the temporary crown and then install and adjust the permanent crown so that it fits well and is comfortable. If you have more questions or need to schedule an appointment for a dental crown installation in Western Massachusetts, please call our office.

What Should I know About the Dental Bridge Procedure?

The dental bridge procedure is just like a dental crown procedure except we’re fabricating and installing a bridge rather than a crown. You’ll need at least two visits to our office. The first visit will be for prep work, installing a temporary, and then ordering your permanent crown. Your permanent crown will be installed on your second visit.
