Crowns and Fillings
It is common for a patient to take very good care of their teeth, but still fall victim to a tooth crack or tooth decay. When this happens, the McKeel Family Dentistry may recommend a crown or a filling for your teeth.
While fillings and crowns are a bit different, they do similar things. A filling would be recommended if there are smaller amounts of damage. When getting a filling, we will remove the decayed part of the tooth, and then fill it with a perfectly natural looking material. A crown is recommended when there is a badly damaged tooth. Dental crowns are used to cover a tooth that is weak from damage. It will protect the tooth from any more damage. At the McKeel Family Dentistry, we take pride in offering dental crowns that perfectly match your other natural teeth. Please call us at (503) 665-8888 or visit us at our Gresham location.
