Covid-19 Update

We are doing our part and help get everyone through the current dilemma. We will be consolidating some of our clinics but otherwise continue to provide urgent and emergency dental care. We will be donating our extra supplies to local hospitals to help them in their effort to better care for those affected.

To also help, we are now expanding our hours in some of our clinics from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  We hope these extended hours will not only better serve our patients but will help keep dental emergencies from overloading value space in emergency rooms.

Why do I need a crown instead of a filling?

Woman | Dental Crowns Troutdale OREach dental restoration serves a unique purpose, and at Troutdale Dental our dentists will explain each of your options, share x-rays and photos, and help you make a choice that will give you the results you want. 

Many people believe that they only have one option. Our creative dental team will meet you where you are, accounting for your budget, oral health, and long-term goals.

Dr. Brinton and Dr. Hale may recommend dental crowns for a variety of reasons including:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Cracked of fractured teeth
  • Teeth with root canal treatment
  • Discolored or unattractive teeth
  • Deeply decayed teeth
  • Cosmetic dentistry purposes

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Fillings, onlays, inlays, and bonding all repair teeth, but lack the stability and protective nature of a crown. Dental crowns cover your entire tooth structure and absorb the force of chewing. A dental crown repairs teeth, prolongs their service, and can help you avoid dental extraction.

To determine the type of restoration that will repair your tooth, we welcome you to contact our Troutdale, OR dental office to book an appointment. We reserve time in our practice for new patients and emergency situations so that you never need to wait for the dentistry you need immediately.
