Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns Baton Rouge - Tiger Smile Family Dentistry


Crowns, sometimes referred to as “caps”, provide full coverage protection for teeth. They can be used to strengthen, protect, reshape, and reshade teeth. There are different types of dental crowns including porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, gold, and stainless steel (usually for baby teeth).

Your dentist will determine which is best for your treatment depending on your case. Porcelain crowns are often preferred and can be matched to your existing teeth by color and contour, keeping your teeth looking natural .

Our Procedure

At Tiger Smile Family Dentistry, we aim to provide trusted restorative dentistry treatments for everyone. The crown treatment process is as follows:

We prepare your tooth – your dentist will remove the outer portion of your tooth for the crown to fit.

Impression – we take a detailed mold of your tooth to customize a crown that fits exactly to your tooth.

Temporary crown – usually, you have to wait for your permanent crown to be fabricated by a lab; in the meantime, we create a temporary crown for you to use.

Crown ready – once we have the crown, we will place it in your mouth 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 Crown Procedure Hurt?

Anesthetic is applied to the surrounding area before the procedure, so the procedure is usually very comfortable and easy for patients. 

If you have a low tolerance for pain or very high anxiety when it comes to dental treatments, you can discuss other alternatives with your dentist.

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 or change  their appearance.

What Else You Should Know About Dental Crowns

Tiger Smile Family Dentistry also offers root canal treatment. After the root canal treatment, your dentist will usually recommend a dental crown to protect the weakened tooth. 

After 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 crown doesn’t make your tooth immune to cavities. This is because the crown sits above the gums, and if you neglect proper oral care and maintenance, you can still get decay between the natural tooth and the crown.  

Dental crowns can also loosen if you bite something hard, get hit in the face, attempt to use your teeth to open something, or regularly clench and grind your teeth. If this occurs, the crown may need to be recemented or replaced. like a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers, diamond painting is the new creative hobby that’s taking the crafting world by storm.
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.
