Whats the difference between fillings and crowns?

Thursday, March 10th, 2011
Q.

Hi been to the dentist today as I have lost part of a filling on one of my back teeth – dentist has said needs a crown but would cost £198 as nhs charge 3 for a silver colouredcrown or £150 for private white composite filling??? Bit baffled so took the private route as cheaper? Why crown and not filling on nhs? Also had to pay half now for appointment in a month??? I’ve paid for services not yet received??? I wouldn’t do this for any other service so feel slightly conned?

After dental implant surgery, I can see my jaw next to the buttons, is this normal?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
Q.

I have just had dental implant surgery yesterday and although feeling a bit achy in the jaw everything seems to be fine. I have just been brave enough to look at the gum though and it looks as if a part of my jaw is showing through the gum. The dental surgeon did put things he called buttons in to my jaw so I don’t know if it might be one of these I can see. The surgery was at the back top left of my jaw to replace three missing teeth. Does this sound okay.

I had a tooth pulled, would I be suitable for an implant?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
Q.

I was having issues with a recent root canal and decided to have it pulled instead of going through re-treatment and possibly oral surgery. The permanent crown had not yet been placed, and I was wondering if it could be used instead for an implant. My dentist was not optimistic that it would work, but he was very unhappy with my decision at all. I’d really like a second opinion.

Thank you!!
