Could a dental crown be what you need to improve the health and function of your smile?
Are you dealing with a weak, damaged tooth? Do you hate that the only thing you notice about your smile is a severely misshapen or discolored tooth? Do you wish there was a way to protect a tooth from further damage all while improving its overall appearance? If so, you’ve come to the right place, because this is a job for your Lafayette, LA, dentist, Dr. Ken LeBlanc.
Dr. LeBlanc may recommend getting a dental crown if:
- You are dealing with a weak, fractured, or damaged tooth
- You have a tooth that is malformed, oddly shaped, or discolored
- You are getting a dental bridge
- You need to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant
As you can see, a dental crown is pretty versatile and can be used for a variety of reasons. When you come in for a consultation, we will discuss your overall treatment goals for either cosmetic or restorative dentistry to determine if dental crowns are the right treatment for you.
Getting a Dental Crown From Our Lafayette, LA, Office
Once we determine that a crown is what you need, the next step is to take impressions of the tooth using a moldable resin. The mold will then be sent off to a lab, where they will create your personalized crown. This ensures that you get a crown with the best fit possible.
While your permanent crown is being fabricated, we will place a temporary crown over your tooth to protect it. Once your permanent crown is complete and ready to be placed, you will come back into our practice so we can check the fit of the restoration before cementing it into place to restore your tooth and enhance your smile.
We are ready to provide you with the dental care you need, whether you just need a professional dental cleaning or you need a full restorative makeover. Our Lafayette, LA, dental team offers all the dental care you could need in one place. To schedule an appointment with Dr. LeBlanc, call us at (337) 406-9994.
