Do I Need a Tooth Filling?
Dental fillings are designed to fill in the gaps left behind when decay is removed from the inside of your tooth. These fillings are designed from durable materials that will stand up to the everyday wear and tear caused by chewing, biting and other routine activities. Your tooth filling cost will typically vary depending on the materials used for these dental solutions and your dental insurance. Call our office for more information if you think you may have a cavity.
Do I Need Dental Bridges or Crowns?
Our dental team may recommend crowns or bridges to protect damaged teeth or to replace missing teeth.
- Bridges are dental appliances that hold one or more artificial teeth. These devices are used to replace missing teeth and to improve the quality of your bite and your smile. By working with our team, you can ensure you receive practical and affordable solutions for your dental issues.
- Crowns are hard metal or ceramic shells that fit over the outside of a damaged or broken tooth to provide an added layer of protection. Your tooth crown will be fabricated specifically to fit your tooth and to provide you with an affordable solution for your missing teeth.

How Much Do Fillings, Bridges or Crowns Cost?

If you are concerned about dental crown cost issues, we will work with you to make sure your care is as affordable as possible by helping you select the right type of crown. This is true of your dental bridge cost concerns. We will help you pick a style and solution that meets your budget or might be covered by your insurance. Call our office and ask about the financing or dental discount plans that may be available as well.
Which Types of Fillings Do You Offer?
Fillings are available in gold, porcelain, silver amalgam and tooth-colored composite. Silver amalgam fillings are among the most affordable and are suitable for back molars and other areas that are not visible at most times. For side and front teeth, porcelain and composite fillings may be the most attractive choice.
Which Types of Crowns Do You Offer?
Also referred to as dental caps, crowns are available in a wide selection of material choices. Porcelain-fused-to-metal and ceramic crowns offer superior durability while preserving the attractive appearance of your front or side teeth. Gold alloy crowns are best suited for back teeth unless you specifically want that look for your front teeth.
Which Types of Tooth Bridges Do You Offer?
If you need a bridge, your dentist may recommend a cantilever or traditional bridge to replace your missing teeth. Cantilever bridges are used in cases where there is a secure attachment point on only one side. Traditional bridges are attached to teeth on both sides. This may require the application of crowns on both sides to ensure the security and stability of your new replacement teeth.
What Happens During a Tooth Crown Procedure?
A dentist at Wadas Dental will take an impression of your tooth. In some cases, we will need to reshape the tooth to make sure that your crown will fit as snugly and securely as possible. Once we have prepared your tooth, we will apply a temporary crown, which will remain in place until we have finished with creating your permanent crown. We will then apply the crown to provide you with a durable solution for your tooth.
What Happens During a Tooth Bridge Procedure?
Your bridge will be secured to adjacent teeth and will provide you with attractive replacements for your missing teeth. When you first come to our office, the adjacent teeth will be prepared to receive the crowns or implants. At this point, you will receive a temporary bridge to wear until yours is fabricated. Once we receive the final version of your bridge, you will come to our office to have it installed. We strive to provide high-quality care, so please contact us if you need a bridge in Indiana.
