Dental Crowns Corvallis, OR
Protect and Save Badly Decayed or Fractured Teeth
Crowns are often the best option for people with badly decayed or broken teeth. When cavities and infection go untreated, they can eventually cause enough damage to the structure of a tooth that a regular filling isn’t enough to repair the damage. Teeth that have been fractured as a result of an injury or accident also need to be covered and protected, usually with a crown.
At Timberhill Dental, we focus on providing incredibly strong and natural-looking crowns to restore the strength, shape, and appearance of a tooth. Our goal is to help you keep all your teeth–even damaged ones–with our safe, minimally invasive, high-tech treatment options. A CEREC® system, single visit crown, may be the best option.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
A crown (also often called a cap) covers the entire surface of a damaged tooth and restores it to its original shape and size.
When you come into Timberhill Dental for a crown, we’ll use the latest digital x-ray and laser diagnostic technologies to determine the extent of the damage to your tooth structure. We’ll help you decide if a dental crown is a right choice for you.
If you decide to get a crown, we will:
- Carefully clean and remove all the decay from your tooth
- Take a highly accurate 3D image of your tooth
- Use those 3D renderings to make a custom crown for you
- Cement the new crown to the surface of your tooth on the same day
Crowns are custom-made for you, and we use tooth-colored porcelain so the result is extremely comfortable and indistinguishable from real teeth.
