Is a Tooth Filling Used to Repair Cavities?
A tooth filling is composed of a durable material that is used to fill in the hole left behind when a cavity occurs or when decay is removed from teeth during your dental examination. At Maple Shade Dental at Camp Crossing, we will design a durable and practical option for your teeth that will provide you with the stability and support damaged teeth require in order to regain function. While the tooth filling cost is not usually a major concern, we will work with you to make sure that your treatment is affordable and practical.
What Are Dental Crowns and Bridges?
Crowns and bridges are dental appliances that perform different restorative functions inside your mouth. We offer both of these treatment options for our patients.
- Crowns are also known as dental caps because they fit over damaged teeth and provide a protective shell to shield teeth from damage caused by severe decay or trauma.
- Bridges fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. These appliances usually consist of a metal or metal and plastic framework that attaches to adjacent teeth and holds a set of artificial teeth or tooth.
Your dental crowns and bridges will help to protect your teeth and to create the best and most attractive smile. Call our office today if you need restorative dentistry.

What’s the Cost for Fillings, Bridges and Crowns?
The cost of dental fillings will depend on the types of materials used for these dental appliances. If you are concerned about your dental crown cost, we would be happy to provide you with a range of options that will work for your budget and your needs. We can also provide solutions for patients who are worried about dental bridge cost issues. Whatever your worries about the expense of dental care, the staff at Maple Shade Dental at Camp Crossing will help you decide on a solution that repairs your tooth and fits within your budget.
What Types of Fillings Are Available?
Fillings are available in a range of materials that include gold, silver amalgam, porcelain and composite. The cost of your filling will typically depend on the type of material you choose, the extent of your dental insurance and any other procedures needed to complete the filling.
What Types of Crowns Are Available?
Like fillings, crowns are available in a range of materials that may include porcelain and metal, gold alloy and ceramics. A tooth crown made of ceramic may be used as a restoration solution for front or side teeth. For back teeth, gold crowns may provide improved durability and increased comfort.
What Types of Bridges Are Available?
Your tooth bridge will replace your missing teeth with a permanent appliance that looks and works like your regular teeth. Depending on the condition of the teeth adjacent to the missing ones, you may be fitted with a traditional or cantilever bridge. The dentists at Maple Shade Dental at Camp Crossing will work with you to help you decide on the right bridge for your needs.
Is the Tooth Crown Procedure Lengthy?
Your crown will be applied in two to three appointments. The first stage is measuring and taking impressions of your tooth and shaping it to accept a specially fabricated crown. We will then apply a temporary crown that will allow you to eat normally while your permanent appliance is being made. Once that process is complete, we will call you to schedule an appointment at Maple Shade Dental at Camp Crossing to apply the permanent crown.
What Happens During the Tooth Bridge Application Process?
Your bridge will be custom-fabricated to fit the gap in your teeth and to suit your needs perfectly. Depending on the application method, your adjacent teeth may be fitted with crowns that will assist in the attachment of your bridge. We will work with you throughout the process to ensure that you understand the procedures our dentists will perform on your behalf.
