What’s the Purpose of a Tooth Filling?

When a tooth has been damaged due to traumatic injury, decay, disease, or a hereditary condition, a filling can help prevent additional deterioration and restore functionality to the tooth. It can also provide aesthetic appeal and may be simpler to install than other applications, such as a tooth crown. If you need tooth fillings in West Springfield, call our office for a consultation and let us help restore your beautiful smile.

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

A tooth crown can cover one or more teeth that may be too damaged to accept a tooth filling. Dental crowns, also called dental caps, cover the entire tooth down to the gum line. A tooth bridge is used to replace a missing tooth and help maintain the structural integrity of the jaw. A bridge is anchored to adjacent teeth or to a dental implant in order to maintain stability. Call our office in West Springfield for more information on dental crowns and tooth bridges.

What Do Dental Fillings, Tooth Bridges, or Crowns for Teeth Cost?

Why Are The Different Types of Tooth Fillings?

There are four different types of dental fillings. Your dentist will make a recommendation based on your specific needs. Not all fillings are appropriate for all applications. Call our office in West Springfield to get more information or to schedule a consultation with one of our dedicated dentists.

Why Are the Different Types of Crowns?

There are four types of commonly used crowns, but not all are appropriate for all teeth. Your dentist will discuss your needs and preferences and then make a recommendation based on your stated objectives. We’re happy to provide you with additional information, call our office in West Springfield today.

Why Are the Different Types of Dental Bridges?

There are four types of bridges: traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported. Each of these types has a specific function. Your dentist will explain which is the best for your situation and will be able to answer all of your questions. Call our office in West Springfield today to schedule an appointment.

Is the Dental Crown Procedure Complicated?

The procedure for installing a crown will require two visits to our office in West Springfield. During the first visit, your tooth will be prepared for installation of the permanent crown, impressions and measurements will be made, and a temporary crown will be installed. During your second visit, your temporary will be removed, the permanent crown will be installed, and your radiant smile will be ready to face the world.

Is the Dental Bridge Procedure Complicated?

The procedure for installing a dental bridge is the same as it is for installing a crown except your dentist will be prepping and measuring for a different dental appliance. You’ll need at least two visits to our office in West Springfield in order to complete your dental bridge installation.
