Our dental team will work with you and your family to determine the most affordable and practical solutions for your needs.
What Is a Tooth Filling?
If your tooth is severely decayed or has a cavity, your dentist will usually clean out the affected part of your tooth and then place a tooth filling into the empty space. Materials used for these fillings may include gold, amalgam, porcelain or other durable and attractive materials. Your filling will help to support the tooth from within to promote the healthiest teeth.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Both crowns and bridges are dental appliances designed to provide added support for your teeth. A tooth crown fits tightly over a damaged or broken tooth to provide added structural support for chewing and biting.
What Type of Dentist Provides Tooth Fillings and Crowns?
At Advanced Dental Care For Kids, our team of dentists can assist you and your family with crowns, fillings designed to improve your bite and to enhance your appearance and your smile. We can schedule these services for you after your regular dental exam. If you have any questions about the cost of your crowns for teeth, dental caps or fillings, our dental team will be happy to work with you to provide the answers you need and to help you feel more confident about the costs associated with your treatment at Advanced Dental Care For Kids.
How Much Will My Crown or Tooth Filling Cost?
The cost of your dental appliance or filling will typically depend on a number of factors, including the amount of work to be done and the materials you choose for your treatment. The dental crown cost is generally considerably more expensive than comparable fillings. Our dental team will be happy to work with you to determine the best and most affordable way to manage costs through dental plans, dental discount programs and payment arrangements with our office.
Types of Dental Fillings
Fillings are generally available in a range of material choices, which may include the following options:
- Silver amalgam
- Composite materials designed to match the tone of your natural teeth
At Advanced Dental Care For Kids, our dentists can recommend the most attractive and appropriate filling materials for your teeth. This can help you to enjoy the brightest smile possible now and in the future.
Types of Crowns
Crowns, like fillings, come in a wide range of materials. Porcelain-fused-to-metal can provide a natural look for your front or side teeth. Gold-alloy crowns are also popular and can create a distinctive look for your teeth. Ceramic crowns offer a good balance between a natural appearance and durability. This can help you to show off your smile with confidence.
What Should You Expect When Getting a Tooth Crown Placed?
Your crown will likely be applied in two separate appointments. During the first appointment, the tooth will be shaped and an impression taken to ensure the proper fit for your crown. Once the crown has been fabricated, you will return to our office to have it applied by our team.
