Dental Implants, Bridges, & Other Restorative Services in Portland

While teeth are pretty strong, they can get damaged. Whether from old age, decay, or a sudden injury it is not uncommon to need special dental implements to protect, save, or replace your teeth. Here we can help install those implements as well as fix them if they have issues.
  • Dental Implants: An implant is the longest term solution for a lost adult tooth. The implant mimics the natural tooth root by connecting the false tooth to a post beneath the gumline.  
  • Dental Bridges: Bridges are another solution for a missing tooth. Like implants they use a false tooth to fill in the gap. However a bridge is connected to the surrounding teeth via crowns instead of implanted into the gum line. Bridges can sometimes require maintenance after a few years since they are not as durable as implants. 
  • Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a synthetic cap placed on a tooth. They are often used after root canals or after a bridge is installed. A crown might also be used if the chewing surface of a tooth has decayed. 
  • Dental Fillings: When decay spreads to teh dentin of a tooth it is necessary to remove the decay and fill it in. Otherwise the decay could continue to spread until the tooth is irreversibly damaged. If you have a cavity we can fill it, or if you have an issue with a filling we can replace it.

My 6 year old daughter has been attending Joy Dentistry for a year. She loves her hygienist Jen. She relates really well to her. She explains what she is doing to my daughter in language she will understand. Great place for children.
