If you don’t have dental insurance or wonder how you’re going to manage out-of-pocket costs, we offer financing at Boss Dentistry to fit your needs. Getting dental treatment is enough of a challenge for many people, and we understand that. So we want to remove any obstacles that stand between you and quality dental care, including offering you the means to fit it into your budget.

Financing Options

CareCredit and Health Credit Services are both designed to help you get the dental care you need and pay down the balance over several months. Choose a promotional period—the length of time you have to pay back the balance—and a monthly amount that fits your budget.

Applying for either is easy; do it online, or a member of our dental care team will be happy to assist you. Approval usually takes just a few minutes and applying for either won’t impact your credit score.

Payment Options

We also accept flex spending plans and major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Whatever your financing needs are, the team at Boss Dentistry will work with you to make a healthy, beautiful smile a reality for you.

Crowns & Bridges

It depends on the location of the tooth and the extent of the damage. In some cases, the solution may be as simple as dental bonding. If the damage is more extensive and involves more of the tooth’s structure, a dental crown might be the best solution.

Dental Restorations in Bridgeton 

There are three types of dental restorations that our Bridgeton, NJ dentists might recommend to fix a broken tooth:

When Dr. Boss and Dr. Virunurm meet with you, they’ll determine the extent of damage to your tooth. They may recommend dental x-rays to see how the structure of the tooth has been affected and the protection it might require.

Since we want you to feel informed, our dentists will also use an intraoral camera to show you what the problem is. They will make a recommendation and explain how the treatment will resolve your issue and improve your oral health.

You can be confident that we will take your unique needs into account so that you are completely comfortable with the decision we make together.

If you need help for a broken tooth in Bridgeton, NJ, please call Boss Dentistry to schedule a dental appointment.

We use bridges and dental implants at our Bridgeton, NJ dental office to replace missing teeth. Both restore your appearance and give you back some function after tooth loss. But they go about it in different ways.

  • A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that places an artificial tooth (pontic) in the open space. The pontic is held in place by dental crowns that our dentists attach to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap in your smile.
  • A dental implant replaces an entire missing tooth, including the root. A tiny post is placed surgically in your jaw and supports the dental crown we attach to it. For this reason, we don’t need to involve any healthy teeth for support as we do with a bridge.

Tooth Replacement Options in Bridgeton

Both are excellent options that work well for patients in Bridgeton, NJ who want to replace missing teeth. If you’re in a hurry or aren’t ready to commit to a dental implant, a bridge is an excellent choice. But if adjacent teeth aren’t healthy enough to support dental crowns, or you’d like a long-term solution to missing teeth, our dentists would recommend a dental implant.

At Boss Dentistry, we also offer full and partial dentures as well as implant dentures. Having options to choose from lets Dr. Boss and Dr. Virunurm personalize your tooth replacement to fit your needs.

Please call us to see which is right for you!

Full & Partial Dentures

When you lose a tooth, it’s always a good idea to have it replaced as soon as possible. You have a noticeable gap in your smile, but you can also experience discomfort when you eat and chew.

Tooth Replacement in Bridgeton

Replacing missing teeth in Bridgeton, NJ may be much easier than you think. At Boss Dentistry, we offer several options to restore your smile, comfort, and confidence.

  • Dental bridges use healthy teeth on either side of the gap for support. The bridge consists of two dental crowns attached to the anchor teeth, with an artificial tooth suspended between them.
  • Full or partial dentures are a time-tested solution to restore your appearance and chewing function. We can make your dentures removable, or we can stabilize them with dental implants.
  • Dental implants are preferred by many of our patients because they look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.

As you can see, you have lots of choices, but our dental care team is here to make the decision easy. Our dentists will listen to your concerns, and explain all the options we think are appropriate for you. But the final decision is yours, and we’ll answer all your questions, so you feel confident with the direction of your treatment.
