If you have a tooth that is fractured, worn down, decayed or otherwise damaged, our experienced and skilled dentists may recommend a dental crown. Crowns, also referred to as dental caps, are a restoration that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth. They are used to strengthen and support your tooth while restoring its overall shape, appearance and function. We also use crowns to protect your tooth from further damage and decay. They are custom-designed and fitted to your tooth, and can be made from porcelain, gold or porcelain-fused-to-metal.
Our team of professionals use dental crowns in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for a number of purposes, such as:
- Protecting and restoring a tooth after a root canal
- Anchoring and attaching a dental bridge
- Covering and completing a dental implant
- Strengthening fractured or weakened teeth
- Supporting teeth with large fillings
- Improving misshapen teeth
- Enhancing the appearance of the tooth
You will likely need two appointments at Louisiana Dental Center to have your smile restored with a dental crown. We will prepare your tooth and take an impression during the first visit before sending it out to be fabricated at a dental lab. You will have a temporary crown on your tooth until you come in for your second visit where we will place and secure your dental crown onto your tooth.
You can get in touch with our office at 225-478-8484 if you have questions or want to make an appointment for dental crowns. Your new smile awaits!
