"I have been happy with this group for routine care and now I have had an emergency and the practice took my call on Saturday, the doctor called me back, and they saw me first thing Monday morning. Very friendly and professional staff as well. I'm also a student and they understand my lifestyle and budget! Scheduling is also easy compared to many practices." Faye S. East Haven, CT

"This was my first visit at the New Haven Dental Group and I highly recommend them to anyone who likes being treated with kindness and very friendly service.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Restore Lost or Damaged Teeth

When a natural tooth is not at its best, it may be difficult if not impossible to enjoy your favorite foods or smile with confidence. To resolve such issues, our New Haven County dental offices offer several high-quality restorative treatments, including customized dental crowns and bridges. Dental crowns are designed to protect what remains of a natural tooth while also rebuilding its original structure. Dental bridges can fill in the gaps left by lost teeth and provide sturdy, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing replacements.

Great Dentistry That Does Not Break the Budget

We understand that many families are concerned about the cost of oral healthcare. That is why we work with patients to help them maximize their dental insurance benefits. Each patient receives a treatment plan with associated costs before they leave the dental office — no unpleasant surprises. If you do not have dental insurance, we accept the Essential Dental Plan, which gives patients a significant discount on dental services for a reasonable annual fee. We also work with CareCredit, a low-interest financing option that breaks up the cost of treatment into small monthly payments.

Frequently Asked Questions

We always listen carefully to our patients and go out of our way to answer any questions that they might have. If you have any specific dental inquiries, all you need to do is call our office and speak to one of our team members. The FAQs below include some examples of questions that we often hear along with our responses; before you call us, check below to see if the answers you’re looking for are already on this page.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Since the doctors at the emergency room likely won’t have the training or equipment needed to deal with common urgent dental issues like tooth infections, the best thing to do is call your dentist instead. Our team can schedule same-day emergency appointments when necessary; once you get to our office, we will work quickly to identify the root of the problem, and we will discuss your options for treatment.

Please note, though, that you should call 911 if you have a life-threatening dental problem. This may include a fractured jaw, swelling that interferes with breathing, and oral bleeding that does not stop.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

You should determine the traits that you would want to see in your ideal dental practice so that you can look for an office that fits the bill. Good traits to watch out for include:

  • Being led by a well-educated, highly-trained dentist.
  • Accepting your specific dental insurance plan.
  • Having a location that is convenient for you to get to.
  • Offering a comprehensive menu of services that fulfill your loved ones’ various dental needs.
  • Receiving positive reviews from past patients.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup and Cleaning Cost in Branford, CT?

A standard preventive dental appointment should include a review of your health history, a thorough examination of your mouth, a careful cleaning of your teeth and gums, and an oral cancer screening. Your visit may sometimes also include X-rays.

On average, a checkup and cleaning will cost somewhere between $200 and $350, with the exact price being linked to factors such as the geographic location of the practice. Obviously, if you have dental insurance, that can affect how much you will need to pay for your treatment out-of-pocket.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

As you might expect, it takes quite a bit of studying and training to become a dentist. The first step is to obtain a bachelor’s degree with an emphasis on math and science. Then one must enroll in an accredited dental school for at least three years, eventually earning a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS).

Even after obtaining a DDS or DMD, a dentist is expected to keep expanding their knowledge and skillset via continuing education. Specifically, one must complete a certain number of continuing education hours within a specified amount of time in order to remain licensed as a dentist.
