  • 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 at Acadia Family Dentistry in Thibodaux LA Area

Quality dental crowns in Thibodaux, LA to restore your teeth’s function and appearance

When you think about dental treatments, fillings for cavities are probably the first thing that comes to mind. But did you know that dental crowns are not far behind in terms of the most common dental restorations placed in the United States? They are a highly versatile option that can be used to treat a number of oral health issues and aesthetic imperfections. At Acadia Family Dentistry, Dr. Nhu Le provides Thibodaux, LA area patients with high-quality dental crowns that look and feel like natural teeth for a beautiful, functional smile. 

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are also called “tooth caps” because that is precisely what they are. A dental crown is a custom-crafted restoration, typically made from porcelain or other tooth-colored materials such as zirconia, that is placed and bonded over the top of your tooth. Dental crowns may be recommended for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • To hold together pieces of a cracked or broken tooth
  • To protect a tooth that has been weakened due to decay, large restorations, or other reasons
  • After root canal therapy
  • To finish a dental implant
  • To restore the shape of a tooth that has been worn down over time
  • Aesthetic purposes, such as to hide stubborn, oddly shaped teeth, or pitted enamel

Placing a dental crown

Placing a Dental Crown at Acadia Family Dentistry in Thibodaux LA Area

To have a dental crown placed, you will typically come into the office for two visits. In your first visit, Dr. Le will prepare your tooth by shaping it so that the crown will fit snugly in your mouth without being too large. Then, we will take impressions of your tooth so that your crown can be fabricated in the lab, based on our precise specifications. To help protect your tooth and avoid sensitivity while your crown is being fabricated, we will put a temporary crown over your tooth. Once your permanent crown has been sent to our office, you will return for your next visit. Dr. Le will “try it on” your tooth and make any minor adjustments needed for the perfect fit, and then will bond it on to your tooth.

Dental crowns are just one of many tooth restoration options available at Acadia Family Dentistry to help restore the function and appearance of our patients’ smiles. Call us in Thibodaux, LA to schedule your consultation at (985) 303-2920.
