Hockey Is Tough on Teeth
“I love to play hockey, I competed in hockey, I was good at hockey in high school and college. I had fun, I knew how to play. One day I decided not to put on my protection gear to play with some friends and that was the worst decision of my life. My buddy took a shot at the goal when I was in front of him and his bad shot hit me right in the face. EMERGENCY! Help! I called my dentist, Dr. Chung and he got me in that day, they answer 24 hours a day. The puck chipped my tooth bad enough to need a tooth crown. As soon as I got there they offered me sedation which I accepted readily. Well by the time I left the office, Dr. Chung and his team had me looking my good old self and I was very pleased, thanks!”
What are Dental Crowns?
There are two parts to your teeth—the root and the crown. The root of the tooth is covered by gums and bone (in a healthy person). The part of the tooth that is visible in the mouth is the crown (clinical crown). A cemented restoration of the clinical crown is a dental crown or cap. It is a prosthetic that is positioned over your tooth to create a normal look, to strengthen and give durability to your tooth, as well as to strengthen and protect the remaining part of your tooth’s structure, improving the appearance of your smile.

Why Dental Crowns and Not Just a Filling…
Dental crowns are a marvelous solution to reviving the beauty and function of a natural smile. Crowns are a viable solution to damaged teeth that are at a breaking point, rather than just a composite resin filling. Also after an endodontic treatment or root canal, it is necessary to fill the hole created by the removal of the pulp and root and cover the remaining tooth. In both these solutions, the tooth crown is the best option. This process is recommended to protect the root canal as well as provide better protection as they are stronger and more durable than regular fillings. Dental crowns are very often used for makeovers, which will improve your aesthetic appearance. Crowns can also be a stable replacement for missing teeth by cementing them to implants and bridges.

The Dental Crown Procedure at Springwater Dental
Your initial consultation with Dr. Chung will involve answering a series of questions that will help to determine your needs and desires for your beautiful smile. He will guide you through the process of selecting the most appropriate and affordable crown for you and will also explain his sedation techniques for painless treatments. Impressions of your teeth will be made so the team and the lab can copy the shape, color (with porcelain) and structure of the surrounding teeth giving you a perfect custom fit. You may choose to have your crown made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal or gold. Then your tooth will undergo preparation for bonding the crown. Dr. Chung will shape your tooth so that the tooth crown will fit nicely when ready. A temporary cap will sit on top of your tooth for protection until the new one is ready for bonding. The final visit will be to seamlessly fit you with your brand new dental crown. Why wait, call today for dental crowns in Portland (503) 902-6604.
