  • Subjecting all patients to a temperature scan at the entrance to ensure their temperatures are below 100.4 degrees.
  • Disinfecting reception room, check-in and check-out countertops and bathrooms every hour, and wiping doorknobs and sinks with disinfectant regularly.
  • Hydrogen peroxide rinses provided before treatment begins.
  • All patients will call to notify staff of their arrivals and wait in the car until they are ready to be seen.
  • Removing magazines, toys, and non-essential items from the reception room.
  • Practicing social distancing: which includes no handshaking and hugging.

Quality Dental Crowns in Thibodaux, LA Area

Quality dental crowns in Thibodaux, LA start with precision dentistry, durable materials

When the natural “crowns” of your teeth become damaged, we at Acadia Family Dentistry can rebuild this white part of the tooth that is seen above the gumline. Dr. Nhu Le plans and designs quality dental crowns for Thibodaux, LA patients that are built to last and last. They’re also designed to look no differently than healthy, unaltered, natural teeth. The crowns that we may recommend blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Why you may need a dental crown

Dental crowns are also called “caps.” And, just like a cap protects your head from the elements, dental caps or crowns protect teeth that are weak from further damage. So, you may be a candidate for crown treatment if your tooth is:

  • Fractured or broken
  • Vulnerable to breakage due to a large or worn filling
  • Damaged by decay that can’t be adequately resolved with more conservative treatments (such as fillings and inlays)

Crowns as a dental procedure are quite versatile. They may also be used to alter the appearance of an irregularly-shaped tooth as a cosmetic treatment. Additionally, crowns represent the final restorative step following root canal therapy. Root canal treatment may be the only way to preserve a natural tooth that has sustained extensive decay and trauma. Finally, crowns play an important role in tooth replacement. They are used to support conventional bridges, and to restore lost teeth that are rebuilt with dental implants placed in the jaw. In turn, the implants function like tooth roots to stabilize the crown.

Quality crowns

Crowns and other types of restorations at our office are characterized as “high-quality”; notably, with good oral hygiene and regular check-ups and cleanings our office, you can enjoy our durable crowns for a lifetime. Depending on your needs and preferences, Dr. Le may prepare and place crowns made from a variety of attractive and strong dental materials. These options include crowns made completely from porcelain or sophisticated dental ceramics such as zirconia. Crowns may also be fabricated from a mix of ceramics and metals (Porcelain Fused to Metal or PFM).

Regardless of the type of material that is selected to rebuild and preserve the remaining natural tooth, all treatments are generally completed in two visits.

  • The first visit involves shaping the natural tooth structure and removing any decay that may be present. Afterward, information about the tooth is collected with advanced diagnostic tools. This information is used by our dental lab to make your permanent crown. A temporary crown is placed until the lab-made crown is completed.
  • The second visit to our office involves removing the temporary and replacing it with the permanent crown. Before the crown is permanently fixed to the tooth, Dr. Le will assure that everything looks and feels great, and will make minor refinements as needed.
