Question: I am a minor with yellowish looking teeth.  I hate to smile because I do not have white teeth and my mom will not pay to have my teeth whiten at the dentist.  I also ask to use whiten strips but she says she was told they can make your teeth sensitive and would prefer for me not too.

Question: How much does a bridge cost and is it permanent?   

Answer:  The average cost of a single fixed bridge depends on many factors, from which region you’re in to how many and which type of bridges are needed. Typically dental bridge cost ranges from $500-900 per tooth. Dental insurance typically pays for about half of the cost of the bridge. This is a cost per tooth in the bridge, and doesn’t include the costs for any anchoring crowns on either side of the bridge.

All of your child 20 primary teeth should come in between the ages of six months and three years. Your child will lose his or her primary teeth between the ages of six and 11.

It is important for pregnant women to have a complete dental exam and have any cavities or gum disease treated.
