Tooth damage can wear away the original shape and size of your tooth over time. This can cause changes to the shape, structure, and integrity of the tooth. Damage can occur individually, or to multiple teeth, and can limit dental options for repair. Crowns in Portland are an excellent solution. The dentists at Laurelwood Dental has the experience and technology to provide you with long lasting custom printed crowns for any damaged teeth.
A crown (sometimes called a cap) is an artificial cover that is placed on an individual tooth (somewhat like a thimble over your finger) to restore a decayed or damaged tooth to its normal shape and size. This procedure is often necessary when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. It is also useful for protecting teeth that are cracked or broken. A crown can also be used to change the shape of a tooth, to correct a bite or cosmetic problem, or to replace existing broken or poor-fitting crowns.
