What’s a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns restore your smile by covering a severely stained or damaged tooth. They are also called dental caps because they cap a tooth that has been filed down to accommodate the crown. If you have been considering a crown, call our office to make an appointment with our dentist.
How Much Do Tooth Caps Cost?
The material used to fabricate the crown is a large factor in the determination of your cost. Additionally, your dental insurance and the location of the tooth in your mouth factor into the cost of your dental crown.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges bridge the gap between missing teeth with artificial teeth called pontics. A dentist attaches the bridge to the abutment teeth on both sides of the gap. Since the abutment teeth need extra strength, dental crowns fortify the teeth. If you only have one tooth to use as an abutment tooth, our dentist can use a cantilever bridge.
How Much Does a Dental Bridge Usually Cost?
Your fee for a dental bridge depends on the number of pontics, or artificial teeth, you need, the type of bridge and the materials used to make your bridge, your dental insurance, and the difficulty of placing the bridge.

What Is the Average Cost for Dentures?

Can I Eat Sticky Foods with Full Dentures?
You can eat with full dentures in, and with implant-supported teeth you’ll have improved biting power. However, it may take a few days of practice to get used to eating with them. Start by eating soft food in small bites until you are used to eating with the dentures.
What Will I Pay for a Partial Denture?
Your partial denture fee depends on whether you need an upper or lower denture, your dental insurance coverage or discount plan, and the number of teeth needed in the denture.
Why Are Flipper Teeth Used for Replacing Teeth?
Flipper teeth are for provisional use while you wait for your implant, fixed bridge, or permanent partial denture. They are lightweight and removeable to provide the greatest convenience.
What Do Immediate Dentures Cost?
If you call us to make an appointment, our dentist can examine your mouth to see if you need any extractions or other preliminary work, and then he or she can provide you with an estimated cost for immediate dentures.
Do Dental Fillings Hurt?
Our dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area. He or she will not proceed until you are numb and cannot feel any pain.

Your cost for a dental filling depends on the filling material that you select and your dental insurance coverage. Most dental insurance plans cover dental fillings, although you may only have coverage for a metal filling.
What Is a Composite Dental Filling?
Composite fillings are tooth-colored and are suitable for small and medium size cavities. Our dentist will color the composite material until it is the shade of your natural teeth. If you are interested in having a cavity filled with a material that is not noticeable, call our office to schedule your appointment.
What Are Teeth Onlays for?
Porcelain onlays can rebuild a broken cusp. Other materials are also used for onlays, such as durable gold for molars.
What Do Onlays Usually Cost?
Your onlay cost depends on the material used and your dental insurance coverage. If the onlay is restorative, and not cosmetic, you may have coverage. Contact our office to schedule your appointment and our dentist will tell you your anticipated cost before beginning any work.
What Are Dental Overlays?
An overlay goes over a tooth to strengthen it and prevent further damage. An overlay typically covers more of the tooth than an onlay, which is why overlays are often referred to as partial crowns.
What Is the Dental Overlay Cost?
Our dentist will assess your tooth and provide you with an estimate of your overlay cost. Prices vary depending on the overlay material and the difficulty of the procedure.
