Dental Crowns

If a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, it may not be possible to adequately protect it from further harm through the use of dental fillings or direct restorations. However, if left untreated, a severely damaged tooth will likely require extraction at some point. To salvage compromised teeth, prevent the need for extraction, and safeguard against further decay or damage, dental crowns can be placed. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped prosthetics that are placed over affected teeth, encapsulating them fully. This helps prevent further decay while restoring the function and appearance of the affected tooth. Dental crowns are a staple of restorative dentistry – at our Lake Oswego practice, we can determine whether you'd be a candidate for such treatment.  Dental Crowns
