Financing


Yes, we offer a variety of payments plans up to 24 months with NO interest! We also offer extended payment plans that extend up to 72 months and we also offer In-House Payment Plans.

It’s extremely difficult to post a menu of prices as they vary from patient to patient. Dentistry procedures can be complex and it can be extremely difficult to quote you over the telephone. We will be happy to give you a price range over the telephone, however, we can not guarantee any pricing until proper X-rays and an examination is performed.

 

 

Crowns


Don’t Panic! It is very important that you are seen within 1 to 2 days after it falls off, call us now at our offices at 813-381-5858. immediately. In the meantime, you can visit your local CVS or Walgreens drugstore and purchase a product called “Temp-Off” or any other temporary material to temporarily cement until your appointment. If the temporary is broken, schedule with our office immediately to make you a new one (no cost). Or simply place a dab of toothpaste in the temporary crown and place it back on if possible.

Call the office to schedule an easy 15 minutes adjustment, It is possible that the ligament that surrounds your tooth is inflamed and can be irritated from the temporary sitting too high.

Crowns usually fall off because bacteria have eaten away the tooth under the crown causing the seal to break and popping off the crown. This is not always the case though and it’s important that you call us immediately after any crown falls off. The risk of needing a root canal becomes much greater after you lose a crown.

How long your crown will last will depend on how well you clean and take care of it. The ADA usually rates the lifetime of crowns to last an average of 10 years, however, we have seen many well-taken care of crowns last 30 years plus.

 

 

Fillings


Slight sensitivity is normal after a filling procedure, however, when you bite your teeth together if you feel like you’re biting on the filling first and unevenly, call our office for a simple adjustment.
