What Does a Tooth Filling Fix?
Fillings for your teeth are used to restore enamel or another part of the tooth lost to decay. Your tooth filling is designed to fill in the hole in your tooth and to provide added stability for damaged areas, which can help you to chew, bite and speak without pain and with greater confidence. This will help you to enjoy the foods you love and to feel much more confident in all that you do.
Are Dental Crowns and Bridges Also Restorative Devices?
Crowns and bridges are dental appliances that offer added help in managing missing or delicate teeth. Crowns are also referred to as dental caps because they fit tightly over your teeth to protect them from chewing, biting and other activities that could put pressure on damaged or decayed teeth. Bridges are designed to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and to provide you with replacement teeth that look like your natural teeth.

How Much Will You Pay for Fillings, Bridges or Crowns?
In most cases, fillings are relatively inexpensive. This is good news for patients in our office who are concerned about their tooth filling cost. The dental crown cost, on the other hand, will vary depending on the type of material used for these appliances. If getting a dental bridge, your overall dental bridge cost is dependent on the materials chosen, the configuration of the bridge and the number of teeth to be replaced by your bridge. If you call our office today, one of our staff members will be able to give you more information about pricing, especially if you have dental insurance.

At The Dental Center of Granger, we offer fillings in a range of materials, everything from gold to amalgam.

Call us today for more information.
What Types of Crowns Are Offered?
Your dentist will recommend the right crown for your needs after a thorough examination. In most cases, you can choose from porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, gold alloys or ceramic materials for your crown. Our dental team will provide you with accurate information on the right solutions for protecting your teeth and managing your budget in the most effective way possible.
What Types of Bridges Are Offered?
Your tooth bridge may be designed as a cantilever or traditional bridge. Traditional bridges are attached to the teeth on both sides of the gap. Cantilever bridges, by contrast, are used to fill in gaps that are bordered on just one side by healthy teeth. The dental professionals in The Dental Center of Granger will provide you with expert guidance on the proper tooth bridge for your needs and for your budget.
What Should I Expect During a Tooth Crown Procedure?
During your crown procedure, the tooth will be shaped and prepared for the application of a temporary crown. We will also take an impression of your teeth to make sure that your permanent crown fits correctly and that you enjoy the best care for your teeth and your overall dental health.
How Do the Dentists at The Dental Center of Granger Apply a Bridge?
Our dental team will examine your teeth and will evaluate the condition of the adjacent teeth before deciding on the right options for your teeth and your new bridge. Then, your teeth with be prepared for crowns or implants and we will give you a temporary bridge to wear while yours is being created. When we have the bridge, we will attach it and make sure everything is comfortable.
