Why do I need a crown instead of a filling?
Each 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.
