Why Do I Need a Tooth Filling?
If you have severe tooth decay that has caused a cavity in one of your teeth, a filling is often the most practical solution for your needs. Our team will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and use a specialized dental material to fill in the opening in order to seal off the interior of your tooth. This will provide you with added help in maintaining the integrity of your tooth and your ability to chew and bite without pain.
Are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges Used to Fix Damaged Teeth?
Crowns are also called dental caps because of the way that they fit over the outside surface of your tooth. For damaged or severely decayed teeth, a tooth crown can provide structural support that will protect these teeth from further damage during regular biting and chewing.
A tooth bridge is designed to replace missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and work like your natural teeth. These devices are designed specifically to connect to the teeth adjacent to the missing space. We hope to provide you with greater confidence and increased self-esteem through the installing of a dental crown or dental bridge.

What Varieties of Crowns Do You Offer?
Gold crowns are typically used for back teeth. For front teeth, Maple Shade Dental of East Peoria will typically recommend ceramic or porcelain-fused-to-metal bases, depending on your situation.
What Varieties of Dental Bridges Do You Offer?
Bridges are available in two different configurations:
- Cantilever bridges are used to restore teeth in cases where only one side has viable adjacent teeth.
- Traditional bridges are attached to adjacent teeth, which may require crowns to provide the most secure attachment for these dental appliances.
What Should I Expect During My Tooth Crown Procedure?
During the application of your crown, your dentist will take an impression of the tooth. Shaping and shaving of the tooth may also be required to prepare it to receive the crown. You will usually receive a temporary crown, which will be removed when the permanent crown is completed and is applied in our office. Throughout the process, we will keep you informed and will provide you with the information you need to make the right decision regarding your dental health.
What Should I Expect During My Tooth Bridge Procedure?
Your bridge will require accurate measurements of the gap between your teeth and, in some cases, the application of crowns to the adjacent teeth. This will allow your bridge to fit between your teeth securely and to provide permanent replacements for damaged or missing teeth. Our team will work with you at every step of the process, right until your permanent bridge is cemented in place.
