What’s Involved in Getting a Tooth Filling?
If you’re experiencing pain in a tooth, you might need a tooth filling, and it’s best to attend to that pain promptly. If you delay, the tooth could deteriorate to the point that it can’t be saved. When you get a filling from our dental professionals in Northern Virginia, your dentist will clean out the damaged part and prep the area and then fill the tooth. Several types of fillings are available and your dentist will discuss your options with you. If you need one or more fillings in your teeth, call us in Manassas at (703) 574-0971 or Woodbridge at (703) 584-5028 to schedule an appointment.
What Are Tooth Bridges and Dental Crowns?
If you have one or more teeth that need extensive damage repair, your dentist in Northern Virginia may place dental crowns on them. Crowns cover the tops of the teeth and restore their functionality. If you have more than one tooth that needs to be replaced, your dentist may use a tooth bridge to anchor the teeth in place. Call our office in Manassas at (703) 574-0971 or Woodbridge at (703) 584-5028 to learn more or to schedule an appointment for a crown or bridge with one of our dentists.

What’s the Cost of a Crown, Dental Bridge, or Filling?
A bridge, crown, or tooth filling cost will be unique to the individual but will be affected by several factors. The provisions of your insurance coverage, the extent of the work you need done, the materials you select, and your overall oral health will all affect your bridge, filling or dental crown cost. Your dentist will examine your teeth during your initial consultation at our office in Northern Virginia and provide you with a crown, filling, or dental bridge cost estimate.
What Types of Tooth Fillings Should I Consider?
Tooth fillings come in various compositions and some are better than others, depending on your dental needs and the location of your cavity. When you arrive to our office, one of our dentists will explain the different options and help you decide which is best for your situation.
What Types of Crowns Are Available?
A wide selection of dental crown materials are available to you including porcelain, porcelain ceramic, gold, and others. You can also get a front tooth crown if you need it. Some materials may be better for certain teeth and your dentist will advise you of his or her recommendation during your appointment at our office in Northern Virginia.
What Types of Dental Bridges Can I Get?
The type of dental bridge you need will be determined in part by the location of the bridge and the number of teeth involved. Some options include a front tooth bridge, a temporary bridge, and a cantilever dental bridge. Your dentist will make a recommendation for you during your examination in our Northern Virginia office.
What’s the Procedure for Getting a Dental Crown?
Your dentist will first examine the area and then prepare the site. He or she will make an impression for your permanent crown and then install a temporary crown. Once we receive the permanent crown, you’ll return to our office in Northern Virginia and we’ll install it. If you need a dental crown, call us for more information or to schedule an examination.
What’s the Procedure for Getting a Dental Bridge?
The procedure for having a dental bridge installed is the same as for getting a crown. Your dentist will first examine the tooth or teeth involved, prep the area, and then take impressions for your permanent bridge. You’ll receive a temporary appliance to use until your permanent bridge is ready. You’ll return to our office in Northern Virginia and we’ll install your permanent bridge. If you need dental caps, a tooth crown, several crowns for teeth or any other dental appliance, call in Manassas at (703) 574-0971 or Woodbridge at (703) 584-5028 to schedule an evaluation with one of our skilled dentists.
