Tooth Crown Dentistry In Portland
What is a Dental Crown?
Your tooth crown is the part of the tooth above the surface of the gumline. A dental crown is a cap or covering that we can place over your natural tooth after a tooth has become damaged or decayed. Dental crowns protect teeth and preserve them from future decay or infection.
Protect Your Smile With Stunning Dental Crowns From Brookside Dental
At our practices in Gresham and Clackamas, we craft our crowns with only the highest quality porcelain materials. We never use amalgam or unsightly metal crowns that can contain trace amounts of harmful toxins or substances. Our crowns look beautiful and completely natural. Using porcelain, we can perfectly mimic the color and translucency of your natural teeth. With tooth colored crowns from Brookside Dental in Portland, the people you meet won’t even be able to tell that you’re wearing a dental crown. After a while, a crown will feel so comfortable and natural that you may forget you’ve had a crown placed yourself.
A tooth crown is generally necessary after a root canal or other restorative dentistry procedure. We also use our dental crowns to create dental bridges for patients who are missing teeth.
Replace Your Missing Teeth With a Beautiful Dental Bridge From Your Brookside Restorative Team
A dental bridge is a dental appliance that uses a series of porcelain crowns to fill the gap left by a missing tooth.
Dental bridges feel secure and can provide you with the functionality you’ve been missing since you first lost your tooth. To create a dental bridge, we attach crowns to your teeth adjacent to the gap. We use these crowns as posts and can cement another dental crown in between those crowns to bridge the gap in your mouth. Dental bridges can be used to replace single or multiple missing adjacent teeth.
