What Are Dental Crowns?
Teeth with significant damage or tooth decay can be fixed using dental crowns. Our team proudly provides these dental restorations to Lake Oswego, OR patients to help strengthen and protect the visible area of a damaged tooth while returning it to its original size and shape. Crowns are made to blend evenly with your existing teeth for a seamless appearance. They can be attached to single implants to replace individual missing teeth or combined into a unit to function as a bridge. Contact Contemporary Dental Health The Center for Advanced Dentistry to arrange a consultation with our practitioners to find out if dental crowns can restore your smile.
What Can I Expect from Dental Crowns?
Dental crown procedures generally take more than one visit. At your first appointment, one of our dentists will numb the treatment area and may use sedation to ensure your comfort. After clearing away the damaged tooth structure, we'll take an impression of the tooth to create your personalized crown. A lifelike temporary crown will cover the treated tooth to allow for normal dental function while your custom crown is being made. You should come back to our office in 1 – 2 weeks to have the temporary crown removed and the custom crown bonded to your tooth or implant post.
After your custom crown is in place, we'll smooth it out so your bite is even and comfortable. Our team will talk to you about how to properly care for your crown. When you visit for regular exams at our Lake Oswego, OR practice, our dentists will examine your crown and overall oral health. Crowns should help preserve your tooth's function and appearance for years when properly cared for. If it ever feels loose or falls off, we urge you to contact Contemporary Dental Health The Center for Advanced Dentistry (do not try to fix it yourself).
Contemporary Dental Health Reviews
LeeAnna is my favorite, and I'm always glad to see her when I come thru the doors. She has a heart of gold and her work at the front desk and behind the scenes keep this place firing on all cylinders. Dr. Ogawa listened and spoke with me, not at, or over me. I'd been through sorta an ordeal with seriously failed dental work from another office. My emotions and wallet were burned thru by the time I found them. My last dentist took 3 tries at a crown b4 giving me what Ogawa did in 1. During my previous dentist's 3 tries, I'd had two of my own original teeth break off as a consequence. His training and personality are such that he won't forget your teeth are connected to your jaw, head, neck, etc...And if you want conservative treatment, he will provide it. Contemp Dental gave me what others could not, and they gave it to me right away, even tho I couldn't pay for a couple weeks. You will not encounter apathy here, but you will meet his kind brother, empathy. They maintain beyond the industry standard. Plus, dental hygienists, Vikki and Dorcas, maintain a following all of their own. I've been lucky enough to have them on and off for 20 years, as they've changed locations. That they work in this office, with Ogawa, all together now, says much for the whole group and affirms my thinking that this is the place to be for both routine cleanings, and hardcore restorations. This is a group of practitioners and office staff, working as hard as they can to be the smiling professionals you'd be well served to enjoy. I thought I added captions to the attached photos, the nice circled temporary crown came from Contemporary Dental, while the two offensive ones to the right came from Uptown Family Dental. All temporaries were modeled off that same gold crown.
