A tooth filling is used to restore functionality to one or more teeth that have been damaged due to disease, decay, or injury. They can be a simpler, more effective solution than dental caps or a tooth bridge. If you need dental fillings in Greenfield be sure to contact our office for more information or to schedule an appointment.
Dental crowns and tooth bridges can help maintain the usefulness of teeth that have been badly damaged. A crown will sit independently on top of a tooth while a bridge will be anchored to adjacent teeth or implants. Our dentists can help you maintain your beautiful smile and your good oral health, so contact us today for an appointment in Greenfield.
Most general dentists in Greenfield can install fillings, crowns and bridges although clients may sometimes be referred to a specialist for more extensive cases.
Each dental office in Greenfield is responsible for setting its own rate structure and you’ll need to come in for an examination before we can give you an approximate estimate of your total tooth filling cost. The cost depends on many factors, including the material used.
As with tooth fillings, you will need to come into the office for a dental examination. This is to help us provide the most accurate pricing based on the specifics of your situation.
What Different Types of Tooth Fillings Can I Have?
Dentists in Greenfield provide four types of tooth fillings: amalgam, composite, porcelain, and gold. Amalgam is the most common and cost effective. Your dentist will discuss with you the advantages of each and make a recommendation. Call us today for an appointment or to get more information on a tooth filling procedure.
Dental crowns are available in four types: ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, base metal alloy, and gold. Not all dental crowns for teeth are appropriate for all teeth, so your dentist will discuss your needs with you and advise you of the best type of crown for your situation. Call us today and we’ll schedule an appointment.
There are three types of bridges: traditional, cantilever, and implant-supported. Each of these bridges is best suited for certain teeth, so your dentist will recommend which would work best for you. We’ll help you achieve the best dental appliance for you needs so that you maintain your dental health and beautiful smile.
The procedure for having a dental crown installed will require two trips to our office in Greenfield. During the first visit, your tooth will be prepared for the permanent installation, we’ll take measurements and make impressions. Then a temporary crown will be installed.
On your second visit to our office in Greenfield, we’ll remove the temporary and install the permanent crown. We’ll adjust the permanent crown so that it’s a comfortable fit for you and you’ll be done. Call us if you have more questions, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The procedure for installing a dental bridge is very similar to that of installing a tooth crown. It will take at least two visits to our office. The first visit will entail measurements and impressions so that your new bridge fits well, and the second visit will be installing your bridge.
