Why Are Tooth Fillings Used?
A tooth filling fills the indentation left in a tooth when a cavity is removed. It stops decay from spreading and restores functionality of the tooth. If you have a cavity or notice decay starting, call us at (941) 548-1422 without delay and get the tooth fillings you need in Englewood.
Why Are Dental Crowns and Bridges Used?
A dental crown is used when the damaged area is too large to accommodate a filling. Sometimes, crowns are also called dental caps. A tooth bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing but dentures aren’t feasible. The bridge is attached either to adjacent teeth or to implants and it’s a permanent appliance that you don’t need to remove for cleaning. If you need a crown or bridge, call us at (941) 548-1422 and we’ll make an appointment for you.
Can a General Dentist Provide Bridges, Crowns for Teeth, and Fillings?

In the unlikely event that you need a special procedure such as a complex root canal, we can refer you to a specialist but we’re usually able to accommodate the needs of our patients. If you need dental work, call us at (941) 548-1422 in Englewood and we’ll make an appointment and answer your questions.

What Options Do I Have for a Tooth Filling?
Silver amalgam, composite, gold, and porcelain are among the most commonly used fillings for teeth. The type of filling used for your application will depend on your preference and your dentist’s recommendation. Some patients want their fillings visible while others do not, and not all fillings are suitable for all teeth. Your dentist will help you decide so call us at (941) 548-1422 to make an appointment if you need one or more tooth fillings.
What Options Do I Have for a Tooth Crown?
Crowns are available in ceramic, gold, and porcelain-fused-to-metal options, and the type of crown you need will partly depend on the location of the tooth. Not all materials are suitable for all teeth. Your dentist will recommend the best type of crown for your particular situation so call us for an appointment today at (941) 548-1422 if you need a dental crown in Englewood.
What Options Do I Have for a Bridge?
Factors that will influence the type of bridge you need include the location of the bridge and the materials you select. If there are adjacent teeth, the bridge will be anchored to them but if not, then it will need to be anchored to one or more implants. Your dentist will provide the details during your appointment at our office in Englewood.
Is It Difficult to Get a Crown Installed?
We provide hundreds of crowns each year to our patients and they trust us for high-quality care in the area. If you need a crown, you’ll need two office visits. During the first visit, we’ll prep the tooth and get it ready for the crown. We’ll then take an impression of the tooth and install a temporary crown. When your permanent crown arrives, you’ll return to our office and we’ll install it with a very strong cement. Each visit should take between 30 minutes to an hour. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at (941) 548-1422 in Englewood.
Is It Difficult to Get a Tooth Bridge?

Your permanent bridge will be installed with very strong cement and won’t need to be removed for cleaning. If you need a dental bridge, call us for an appointment at (941) 548-1422 and we’ll gladly answer all of your questions.
