Can you replace my missing teeth?

Of course! We have a variety of options for restoring missing teeth, including dental implants. A dental implant is comprised of a titanium post that’s embedded into your jaw and then capped with a porcelain crown. The posts can serve as anchors for crowns, bridges and dentures to replace any number of missing teeth.

What should I do if I have a toothache?

Call The Dentists at Orenco Station! A visit to our dental office is the first step toward determining the root of the problem and making you feel more comfortable.

How can I improve my smile?

With the cosmetic dentistry options provided by The Dentists at Orenco Station, we can make your smile better and more beautiful. For example, we have both in-office and take-home teeth whitening services. We also offer porcelain veneers, which can fix a variety of cosmetic dental issues.

How can you straighten my teeth without traditional braces?

The Dentists at Orenco Station can cosmetically straighten your teeth with SureSmile clear aligners. SureSmile uses a series of aligners that gently adjust your teeth into their optimal position. SureSmile is a terrific solution for adults and teens who want to straighten crooked teeth, but don’t need to correct any bite problems.

Is there a difference in quality between CEREC and traditional crowns?

Some patients believe that the convenience of CEREC same-day crowns comes with a catch, like a restoration that is low-quality. However, that’s not the case at all. Our CEREC crowns are crafted from a solid block of tooth-colored dental porcelain, one of the most natural looking and durable materials used for restorations as well as the same high-quality material used in dental labs.

The reasons why they’re both cost-effective and convenient is because your restoration never leaves our hands, meaning there’s no need to send it off to a dental laboratory or place a temporary crown. This provides several benefits as well, like no lapse in communication between a laboratory and your dentist as well as a precisely fitting restoration that meets our high standards.
