Dental Crowns in Bend OR
What are dental crowns?
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.
We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
If your smile have imperfections or missing teeth, don't worry -- we have natural-looking options that can fully restore your smile. Don't hesitate to reach out to our friendly dental team to learn more or to schedule your appointment.541-389-2885
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Having your tooth treated and restored in one day is the obvious benefit to same-day dental crowns.
A broken or damaged tooth affects your smile’s appearance, speech patterns, and eating habits. So, having your tooth restored as soon as possible is important! With same-day crowns, chewing functions are immediately restored so you don’t have to deal with a weak, unreliable temporary crown.
CAD/CAM technology allows dentists to design a restoration that fits accurately and comfortably. The dentist also takes digital impressions so your dental crown is even more exact and the entire process is very comfortable.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
