COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Restorative dental treatment can be a godsend for those whose teeth are in very poor condition. Trauma, neglect, or heredity issues can result in decayed or deteriorated teeth which results in a lack of function and aesthetics which can lead to poor health and a lack of self-confidence.
If you have one or more teeth that need restorative dental treatment, call our office in Orlando to schedule an appointment. One of our skilled dentists can restore your teeth to beauty and function, all at an affordable price. Having a great smile can do wonders for your self-confidence and general health, having functional teeth can enable you to eat your favorite foods again. Your teeth are important to maintain the structure of your jaw and to aid in your digestive process. Call us at (321) 594-2624 to schedule a consultation. We can help you.
Do I Need a Tooth Filling?
A tooth filling covers and protects the indentation that remains when you have a cavity removed. If you need fillings in Orlando, call us today at (321) 594-2624. Your dentist will first clean the area and prep it, and will install a filling to restore the shape of the tooth. Several options are available for fillings and your dentist will discuss those with you during your appointment at our office in Orlando.
How Do I Know If I Need a Tooth Crown or a Tooth Bridge?
A tooth crown is used to cover a tooth that has a cavity that’s too large to accommodate a dental filling. It’s also referred to as a dental cap because it completely covers the tooth down to the gum line. A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It’s anchored to the adjacent teeth or if there aren’t any or there is just one tooth adjacent, then it might be anchored by one or more implants. If you need a dental bridge or dental caps, call us in Orlando to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.
Can a General Dentist Install Bridges, Crowns, and Fillings?
All of the dentists in our office in Orlando can install dental bridges, dental crowns, and dental fillings. In the event that you need a complicated root canal or other specialty procedure, you might be referred to a local specialist but your dentist will let you know. Usually, we can accommodate our patients’ dental needs in our office. We realize that the prospect of having your teeth worked on can be intimidating so call our office in Orlando at (321) 594-2624 with all of your questions.
What’s the Cost for Crowns, Bridges, and Fillings?
No two patients will incur the same cost for the same procedure at the same dentist because there are too many variables. We do our utmost to keep our dental procedures affordable but factors that will influence your cost include the procedure that you’re having, the materials you choose, any other dental issues that need to be addressed, and any insurance coverage that you have. During your initial consultation in our office in Orlando, you’ll be provided with a detailed estimate of your tooth filling cost, your dental crown cost, your dental bridge cost or the cost of any other procedure you’re having. Give us a call at (321) 594-2624 to schedule your consultation or you have additional questions.
What Types of Fillings Can I Choose From?
Commonly used fillings include silver amalgam, porcelain, gold, and composite. Your dentist will recommend the type of filling they consider best based on your preferences. Some patients want their fillings to blend in and others want their fillings to be noticeable. Call us at (321) 594-2624 to schedule an appointment and discuss your options.
What Types of Crowns Are Available?
Like fillings, dental crowns are available in a variety of options. Gold is sometimes used for back teeth, ceramic is typically used for front teeth, and a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown is used for others. The type used will depend primarily on the location and style of the tooth that needs a crown, but your dentist will provide you with the available options during your visit at our office in Orlando.
Is There More Than One Type of Bridge?
There are several types of bridges and the type used is determined primarily by the location of the bridge and personal preference. Some locations require the use of a specific type of bridge and your dentist will advise you of your options during your initial visit to our office in Orlando. Call us today at (321) 594-2624 to schedule your consultation for a dental bridge.
What Will Happen When I Get Crowns for Teeth?
Getting a crown will require a minimum of two visits to our office in Orlando. On the first visit, your dentist will shape the tooth and prepare it to receive the crown. An impression will then be taken in order to make both your temporary and your permanent crowns. Your temporary crown will be installed and you’ll use that until your permanent crown arrives. When we receive your permanent crown, you’ll return to our office and your dentist will remove the temporary and replace it with your permanent dental crown. Very rarely is a third visit required. Each procedure will take between 30 minutes and an hour. Call us at (321) 594-2624 to schedule an appointment for a dental crown or if you have additional questions.
What Will Happen When I Get a Tooth Bridge Installed?
The procedure for installing a bridge is similar to that of a crown. It will require two trips to our office and may take up to an hour or more for each procedure. During your first visit, your dentist will prepare the adjacent teeth and take an impression of the area. This will be used to make both the temporary and the permanent bridges, and the temporary will then be installed. We’ll then order your permanent bridge and when it comes in, you’ll return to our office and we’ll remove the temporary and install the permanent one. If you need a bridge in Orlando, call our office at (321) 594-2624 to schedule a consultation.
