About Dental Crowns in New Orleans, LA

Teeth that are damaged can often be strengthened and protected by a custom dental crown from MINT dentistry. Sometimes called a cap, dental crowns are custom-made to fit over the affected tooth while matching the shade of surrounding teeth for a natural appearance. At MINT dentistry, we offer dental crowns to protect a weak tooth, treat a large cavity, repair broken or cracked teeth, and cover discolored teeth. Crowns may also be attached to dental implants for the purpose of tooth replacement. Our team uses high-grade porcelain crowns so your result looks natural. We love that our patients have the most stunning smiles in New Orleans, LA. Schedule a consultation at our state-of-the-art office to get more information about how a crown can improve the overall health and appearance of your smile.

Do I Need a Dental Crown?

A dental crown may be recommended to treat a number of dental concerns. They can be placed to help prevent a tooth from breaking when it is weakened by decay or to hold together a tooth that is cracked. Dental crowns may be used to treat a tooth that is broken or discolored, mask teeth that are oddly shaped, or cover root canal-treated teeth. Our New Orleans, LA dentists also place crowns to treat larger cavities, serve as part of a dental bridge, and attach to dental implants for tooth replacement. At MINT dentistry, our dental crowns are made with high-quality porcelain and placed with advanced techniques to help ensure an attractive, lasting restoration.

How Do Dental Crowns Work?

Before your crown procedure begins, we'll get you seated in a comfortable treatment chair and you'll be given Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses to enjoy throughout your visit. Next, the treatment area will be anesthetized. Other sedation options are available to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure if you have trouble relaxing due to anxieties or dental fears. Once you're ready, your MINT dentist will prepare the tooth by eliminating any areas of damage and removing a portion of the enamel so the custom crown fits well. Our team will then take digital impressions of the treatment area (or a previously placed dental implant post) that will be used to make your custom crown. A temporary restoration will be placed to protect your tooth as the dental lab makes your custom crown. Once your restoration is complete, our support staff will schedule an appointment for crown placement. The crown will be cemented onto the tooth (or attached to a dental implant). Once the crown is set, your dentist may adjust the fit so it feels comfortable.

How Can I Care for My Dental Crown?

Unless you received stronger sedation, you should be able to resume your normal activities once your crown prep procedure is complete. We'll teach you the best way to care for your porcelain crown, including any foods to avoid and the best way to keep it clean. If needed, our team might suggest you come back for a bite adjustment following the placement of a crown to make certain the alignment is correct. During your oral health exams at MINT dentistry in New Orleans, LA, a skilled dental professional will check your restoration to ensure its fit and function. We'll let you know when the crown needs to be repaired or replaced, but with good care, a crown can last for many years. If you experience any problems with your crown (for example, it becomes loose or falls out), contact us for help. Do not try to fix it or put it back in yourself since this can lead to oral problems, like an infection or improper fit that affects your bite.

The MINT Commitment

A portion of your dental crown procedure may be covered under your insurance plan. Once we've contacted your insurance company, we can calculate any out-of-pocket expenses. During your consultation, your dentist can help you determine the best material for your crown based on your needs and budget.
