Dental Crowns & Bridges

Complete your Smile

We place dental crowns and bridges on a daily basis here at Troutdale Dental. Our practitioners are trained to create restorations that blend beautifully with your natural smile. For a stronger and more appealing smile, ask Dr. Kolts or Dr. Dorrough about dental crowns and bridges.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are caps that cover the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. If your tooth is weak, broken, or too decayed for a traditional filling, a dental crown might be the perfect solution for you.

Dental crowns used to be composed of metal, and were unsightly in the mouth. Today, we utilize a strong, tooth-colored Zirconia that will ensure a beautiful smile while restoring total capacity to your dentition. Dental crowns can improve teeth that are weak, broken down, misshapen, or discolored.

We work hard to make sure that your dental crown feels comfortable in your bite and looks natural with your smile. We will schedule follow-up visits to check on your satisfaction with your dental crown. Feel free to call us at any time with questions or concerns.

Dental Bridges

If you have a space in your smile due to missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill that gap. A traditional dental bridge involves two dental crowns and a prosthetic tooth. The crowns are placed on the natural teeth on either side of a gap, and the replacement tooth completes your smile.

We often fashion our dental bridges with ceramics or porcelain fused to metal. Nobody should be able to tell the difference between your healthy teeth and your dazzling dental bridge. Advantages of the dental bridge include:

  • Restore your full and confident smile
  • Make it easier to chew and speak
  • Preserve the youthful and lifted appearance of the face
  • Promote a comfortable, functional bite
  • Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place and becoming crooked

Are you having difficulty chewing? If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, or if you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, it’s time to learn more about dental crowns and bridges.
