Crowns and Bridges
What’s the Difference Between Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges?
A dental crown can cap an individual’s damaged or decaying tooth or be placed on top of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants are metal fixtures, surgically fastened to your jawbone below the gums. These metal implants become anchored to your bone through osseointegration (the bone fuses to the metal). This process provides stable support you can rely on while eating and speaking. According to the Cleveland Clinic, the healing process after getting an implant can take 6-12 weeks. Your dental professional will then place a metal post (or abutment) into your implant, onto which they will mount your crown.
Regular dental exams are a critical part of preventive health care.
During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease. A Routine Dental Exam at Belltown Dental exam includes evaluating your risk of developing other oral problems and checking your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. A dental exam might also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.
Your dentist or hygienist will likely discuss your diet and oral hygiene habits and might demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. Other topics might include lifestyle factors that can affect oral health and possible cosmetic improvements to your teeth.
How Much Does A Routine Dental Cleaning Cost?
The price varies: A Routine Dental Cleaning usually varies between $75-200 and on average will cost around $125. This rate depends on: the experience and training of your dentist.
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Dentures?
Most dental insurance providers cover some or all of the cost of dentures. However, contact your company to find out the specifics of what they will cover.
While all endodontists are dentists, less than three percent of dentists are endodontists. Just like a doctor in any other field, endodontists are specialists because they’ve completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school.
Their additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth. In many cases, a diseased tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment.
For this reason, endodontists proudly refer to themselves as Specialists in Saving Teeth.
What Types of Filling Materials Are Available?
Today, several dental filling materials are available. Teeth can be filled with gold; porcelain; silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper); or tooth-colored, plastic, and materials called composite resin fillings. There is also a material that contains glass particles and is known as glass ionomer. This material is used in ways similar to the use of composite resin fillings.

Why Visit the Dentist?
Dental check-ups are an important part of your health.
You may think dental check-ups are all about getting your teeth cleaned. But your dentist does much more than polish your pearly whites when you visit. Regular dental visits are important because they allow your dentist to:
Detect cavities early. Your dentist examines your teeth to find cavities while they’re still minor. The earlier you catch them, the less expensive cavities are to treat.
Catch gum disease early. Many people with gum disease don’t even realize they have it.
Detect early-stage oral cancer. Your dentist can check your mouth for signs of oral cancer. This is especially important if you smoke or use tobacco.
Check your fillings. Your dentist will examine your fillings to make sure they’re secure, and find any that are defective or have decay.
Catch dry mouth or bad breath. Your dentist can catch and treat oral conditions that cause dry mouth or bad breath.
Review your oral hygiene. Your dentist and hygienist can help you build and maintain good dental hygiene habits.
Protect your overall health. Research has linked gum disease to heart disease and diabetes
Safeguard your family’s oral health. Kids need dental care, too. Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic infectious diseases among U.S. children.
Two Types of Dental Problems
Dental problems usually fall into one of two categories: tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist can help you fight both of these problems. Read on to learn more
Tooth decay is the destruction of the tooth’s enamel. It happens when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods. They produce acids, which can destroy tooth enamel and result in tooth decay. Tooth decay can happen at any age.
Gum (periodontal) disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Gingivitis is a milder form of gum disease that only affects the gums. But gingivitis can lead to a more serious, destructive form of gum disease called periodontitis.
