Reliable Porcelain Dental Crown Baton Rouge - Tiger Smile Family Dentistry We prepare your tooth – our dentist will remove the outer portion of your tooth for the crown to fit.
Impression – we make an impression to give you the exact model for the crown.
Temporary crown – usually, you have to wait for your permanent crown, while waiting, we will give you a temporary crown.
Crown ready – once we have the crown, we will place it in your mount and make all the needed adjustments. When you are satisfied with how it feels and looks, we will cement it in place.

Does a Dental Crowns Procedure Hurt?

Anaesthetic is applied to the surrounding area before the procedure. On the other hand, if a temporary crown is installed at the same time of an implant or extraction, feeling of discomfort is possible

If you have a low tolerance for pain or sensitive to it, you can discuss with your dentist other alternatives.

Can You Whiten Existing Dental Crowns?

No. If they are discolored, they are required to be replaced with new crowns if you seek to improve their appearance.

What Else You Should Know About Dental Crowns

Tiger Smile Family Dentistry also offers root canal treatment. After the suggested root canal treatment in Baton Rouge, our dentist will suggest that they get a dental crown. 

 After your root canal treatment – endodontic service in Louisiana that we offer our patients to save their tooth and when the dental crown is in place our dentists will educate you on how to properly take care of your crown to prevent damage to it. Your tooth with a crown doesn’t make it immune to cavities. This is because the crown sits above the gums and if you neglect proper oral care, you can still get decay between the tooth and the crown.  

Dental crowns can also loosen if you bite something hard, get hit in the face, or attempt to use your teeth to open something that will require you to use brute force using your teeth.

When a crown is maintained properly, it can last for years. Like any other restorations in the mouth, it may need to be replaced after a while. It is very important that you have your dental check-ups regularly to ensure your restorations are properly protecting your teeth.  You can also check out our fast teeth whitening service in Baton Rouge and other dental services we offer such as dental implants, dentures and more.

I had fractured teeth so I needed to get dental crowns to make them look pretty again. Here in Baton Rouge, I've heard good things about Tiger Smile Dentistry so I decided to give it a shot. I am more than happy that I did because first of all, I love my cool dentist who made sure that I'm always comfortable. Second of all, they explained everything to me. Third, it didn't cost me an arm and a leg just to make my teeth pretty again!
