Why Might I Need a Tooth Filling?

Whenever a tooth is damaged, whether due to disease or injury, a filling might help restore its usefulness. Fillings can be used to fill in the tooth and delay any further damage. On the other hand, a crown or a bridge will restore lost teeth or cover malformed ones. If you need dental work in Ludlow, call our office and schedule an appointment.

Why Might I Need a Dental Crown or a Tooth Bridge?

When a tooth is badly damaged, your dentist can provide you with a dental crown or a bridge that will restore the function of your teeth. A dental crown covers your entire tooth from the top to the gum line. A tooth bridge can help maintain the structural integrity of your jaw and the surrounding teeth. Call our office in ]Ludlow with any questions you have about dental caps, tooth crowns, or bridges.

Do All Dentists Install Fillings, Tooth Crowns, and Bridges?

Usually, a general dentist can install fillings, crowns, and bridges. Although there are several different fields of dental expertise, the skilled dentists in our office in Ludlow keep current on the latest trends in dentistry and will be able to meet your dental needs. Call our office for a consultation.

What Can I Expect for a Filling, Bridge or Dental Crown Cost?

Dental crown costs will ultimately depend on the type of crown selected and the extent of the damage. The dental bridge cost will be determined by the type of material selected and if you require more than one bridge. Finally, the tooth filling cost will depend on the number of fillings needed and the material used to fill the teeth. All of these costs can be determined by visiting our office for an examination.

Are There Various Types of Tooth Fillings?

Our dental offices in Ludlow provide four different types of tooth fillings. They are amalgam, composite, porcelain, and gold. Not all types are suitable for all teeth so your dentist will discuss with you which type is best for your application.

Are There Various Types of Tooth Crowns?

Dental crowns are available in four types: ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, base metal alloy, and gold alloy. Not all of crowns will work for all teeth, so your dentist will recommend the best crown for your situation. Call us to schedule an appointment for a tooth crown or if you have any questions.

Are There Various Types of Dental Bridges?

Your dentist will recommend the best bridge for you and answer any questions you may have. You can also call our office and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

What’s the Procedure for Having a Dental Crown Installed?

The dental crown installation procedure requires two office visits. During the first visit, your tooth will be prepped for the permanent crown, we’ll take measurements and impressions, and then we’ll install a temporary. During the second visit, we’ll remove the temporary and then install the permanent tooth crown. We’ll make sure the crown is comfortable and that you’re happy with it. Be sure to call our office in Ludlow if we can answer any additional questions for you.

What’s the Procedure for Having a Dental Bridge Installed?

The procedure for installing a dental bridge is very similar to a dental crown installation except we’ll be measuring for a bridge. You’ll need to schedule at least two office visits for the complete procedure.
