Rebuild Your Smile with Natural-looking Dental Crowns

When you have damaged, worn-down, or decayed teeth, Fleur De Lis Dental Care in New Orleans, Louisiana, will recommend dental crowns to restore your smile. A dental crown is an aesthetic cap that envelopes an existing tooth to protect the remaining structure while restoring its appearance and function. 

Drs. Jon Celino and Jorge Aguilar offer all-ceramic dental crowns that look natural and are incredibly resilient to withstand the everyday chewing and biting forces. Once we restore your smile with a crown, you’ll resume eating, smiling, and talking normally. No more skipping hard and chewy foods or smiling with your lips pursed to hide your damaged tooth. 

Why you may need a dental crown

Your dentist may recommend a dental crown to correct numerous dental problems. We can recommend a dental crown to:

  • Protect your tooth after a root canal
  • Secure a dental bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Strengthen your decayed or damaged tooth
  • Beautify a misshapen or severely discolored tooth

Dental crowns can be created from several materials, including metal and composite. Our crowns are made from ceramic materials like porcelain for enhanced durability and aesthetics. We also offer zirconia crowns created from one of the strongest materials in dentistry —zirconium. 

Zirconia crowns exhibit a strength that is at least three times greater than that of porcelain restorations. Unlike porcelain, zirconia is resilient enough to withstand wear and tear without chipping, ensuring a durable restoration.

How dental crowns transform are placed

Dental crowns are created to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth for comfortable and natural-looking results. A dental crown must be placed with a skilled and experienced dentist to ensure it seamlessly integrates with the entire smile. When your crown is poorly installed, it may feel bulky, appear unnatural, or even become loose—something no one wants for their smile.

The meticulous process of restoring your smile with a crown starts with a consultation with one of our dentists. During this initial exam, we’ll examine your tooth with X-rays and photos to plan your dental crown treatment. 

Next, we’ll anesthetize your tooth and remove some enamel from around your tooth to create room for a crown. The dentist will then take impressions of your tooth to create an imprint to be used by our dental lab to fabricate your crown. 

Once your crown is ready, we’ll make a few adjustments and then bond it to your tooth with strong dental adhesives for a durable restoration. There you go! You can now live your best life with your newly restored smile.
