Is a Tooth Filling a Good Investment?
There are four different types of tooth fillings commonly available. A tooth filling is used to repair or restore a tooth that is damaged due to injury, decay or disease, or genetics. It can be a reliable solution to halting decay. Other types of dental procedures, such as dental caps or tooth bridges, are used to restore aesthetics. Our office in Northampton is experienced in the application of tooth fillings, so call us today if you need to schedule an appointment.
What Are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?
A tooth crown will completely cover your tooth down to the gum line. A tooth bridge is an artificial tooth that’s anchored to adjacent teeth or to an implant, and its purpose is to replace a missing tooth. Please call our office in Northampton if you have additional questions about a tooth crown or need to schedule an appointment.
What Dentist Does Fillings, Tooth Crowns, and Bridges?
All of the general dentists at our office in Northampton can install fillings, crowns, and bridges. In the event you need additional work, you will be referred to a specialist. Call our office if you need more information specific to your individual needs.
How Much Does a Filling, Bridge, or Dental Crown Cost?
Each patient will receive a different tooth filling cost, dental crown cost and dental bridge cost, because each situation is unique and requires different materials and preparatory work. We will give you a cost estimate for your situation as soon as you visit us for a consultation.
Different Types of Tooth Fillings
There are four different types of tooth fillings, not all of which are suitable for all applications. The four types are amalgam, composite, porcelain, and gold. Your dentist will discuss the best option for your needs. If you have additional questions, please call our office in Northampton, and we’ll be glad to help you.
Different Types of Crowns
Four types of dental crowns are available and the type of crown used will depend primarily on its location. Different types of teeth have different requirements for dental crowns. Your dentist will discuss the best options for your situation. If you need to schedule a crown installation in Northampton call our office.
Different Types of Dental Bridges
Four types of bridges are available. The location of the bridge will primarily determine the type of bridge that you’ll have installed because not all types of bridges are appropriate for all types of teeth.
What’s Involved in the Dental Crown Installation Procedure?
Installation of your dental crown will necessitate two office visits. On the first visit, the tooth or teeth are prepared for the permanent crown, impressions and measurements are taken, and a temporary crown is installed. On the second visit, the temporary is removed and the permanent crown or crowns are installed. If you need more information on our dental crown installation procedures in Northampton, be sure to call our office.
What’s Involved in the Dental Bridge Installation Procedure?
The dental bridge procedure is very similar to the dental crown installation procedure, we’re just installing a different dental appliance. Installation of a bridge will require at least two office visits.
