Crowns & Bridges From Your Dentists in Portland
If broken or missing teeth are causing you to hide your smile, there's no need to endure a life of self-consciousness any longer! At Gifford Family Dentistry in Portland, we take immense pride in offering our patients a range of natural-looking tooth restoration and replacement solutions that have the power to completely transform your smile.
What is a Dental Crown?
For teeth that are chipped, severely damaged, or discolored, a dental crown is the ideal solution. This prosthetic marvel snugly fits over the affected tooth, providing both a natural appearance and long-lasting results.
The process of placing a dental crown generally involves two appointments. During your initial visit, we will take precise molds of the tooth and its surroundings. After preparing the tooth for the crown placement, a temporary protective crown will be put in place until your custom-crafted final version is ready. Once it's prepared, we'll schedule your follow-up appointment to ensure a perfect fit and appearance. After confirming the ideal fit, your personalized, permanent crown will be securely placed, and we'll provide you with guidance on how best to care for it.
What is a Dental Bridge?
If you've experienced the loss of one or more teeth, a dental bridge could be the key to restoring your smile's radiance. This transformative solution effectively fills the gaps left by missing teeth, and the procedure is akin to the crown placement process.
Once we've taken an impression of the area, the neighboring teeth that will anchor the bridge will be prepared for crowns, ensuring a strong foundation. While your permanent bridge is being meticulously crafted, a temporary prosthetic will be put in place. Upon completion, we'll invite you back to our Portland office for a fitting. We'll ensure your bridge, complete with its lifelike artificial teeth, fits comfortably and looks seamless before securing it in place.
