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.
Missing or damaged teeth, whether due to disease or trauma, can lower your self-confidence and adversely affect both your physical and your oral health. Modern technology can provide you with replacement teeth or appliances that look and function like your natural teeth, so you no longer need to suffer with missing or damaged teeth. When you need restorative dentistry in Midland Park, call our office to schedule an appointment with one of our skilled dentists.
Why Is a Tooth Filling Important?
A tooth filling can halt further damage to a tooth that has decayed, and it can protect the remainder of the tooth. When you come to our office for one or more dental fillings, your dentist will remove the decayed part and clean the area, and then we’ll fill the cavity with amalgam, porcelain, gold or another material. Not all types of fillings are suitable for all types of teeth, but your dentist will explain your options for fillings, so call us today for an appointment.
Why Are Dental Crowns Important?
Dental crowns for teeth are permanently installed dental prosthetic devices that are affixed in place using a high-bond adhesive, so you don’t have to worry that they’ll fall out or slip. They require no additional maintenance and they protect your remaining teeth. Dental crowns are also called dental caps because they cap the tooth and they’re used when the damage is too extensive for a filling.
Where Can I Find a Restorative Dentist?
Any general dentist can perform restorative dentistry. But, if you are looking for a dentist you can trust, give us a call if you need this type of dental work. We’d be delighted to speak with you.
Will Restorative Dentistry Procedures Be Very Costly?
Your tooth filling cost, dental crown cost will be unique to you and will be governed by the location and type of work you need, if additional procedures are needed, the materials used, and any insurance benefits you have. During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with an estimate of the procedures and their associated costs. If you need procedures but can’t afford them, we’ll work with you on flexible financing options and flexible payment options so that you don’t have to forego needed treatment because of financial limitations.
Do I Have a Choice for Types of Tooth Fillings?
Fillings are available in several materials, but our most common are an amalgam material, gold, porcelain or tooth-colored composite, but your dentist will recommend the types that are best suited for your unique needs. If you have questions or need to schedule an appointment, then call our Midland Park office.
Do I Have a Choice for Types of Tooth Crowns?
Like fillings, crowns are available in a variety of materials but we most often use ceramic for the front teeth and gold or another material for the rear teeth. Your dentist will discuss the best options for your needs during your appointment.
What Procedure Should I Expect When Getting a Tooth Crown?
Getting a crown installed in our Midland Park office involves three steps and two office visits. During your first visit, your dentist will prep the tooth and then make an impression of it, which will be used to fabricate both your temporary and your permanent dental crowns. We’ll install the temporary before you leave, and when we receive your permanent crown, you’ll return to have it installed. We’ll adjust it for optimal comfort and fit, and then permanently affix it to the tooth using a high-bond glue. Each step will take between 30 and 60 minutes, so call our Midland Park office to schedule an appointment.
