Dental Crowns: Your Multi-Purpose Dental Fix

When you have damaged teeth or imperfections in your smile, it’s hard to enjoy life. You might hide your smile because you’re embarrassed, or you may avoid your favorite foods because of pain and discomfort.

Perhaps the problems with your smile are something you’ve tolerated for a very long time. Unfortunately, you could actually be putting your overall health at risk if you put off correcting such problems.

If this sounds like you, we encourage you to call us at 225-963-5548 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bessonet. He is an expert in restorative dentistry you can trust to repair and protect your smile.

What Are Dental Crowns Anyway?

Dental crowns are like a cap that looks like your natural tooth. It covers your tooth and protects it from further damage. Our advanced technology at Ascension Premier Dental allows us to place your dental crowns simply and efficiently right here in our office. You don’t have to worry about bouncing from one specialist to another all over town.

Dental crowns are an effective solution for:

-chips, breaks, and cracks in your teeth

-worn or weak enamel

-teeth that have serious decay or large cavities

They are also used to cover teeth after a root canal or dental implants. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Bessonet, he can help you determine if dental crowns are a viable option for bringing your smile back.

When Other Methods Fall Short, Count On Crowns!

Large Cavities:  In many cases, a simple dental filling is all it takes to treat a cavity. Other cases, however, must rely on a dental crown to best restore your tooth to full function. If you have a large cavity, there may not be enough healthy enamel to bond with the resin in a normal filling. Dental crowns are a great solution because they cover the entire tooth, allowing you to eat without pain or worry once again.

Damage / Missing Teeth: Crowns are also a natural-looking replacement option for missing teeth. Dr. Bessonet can place a crown over your dental implant or to support your dental bridge so that you can smile with confidence and enjoy your favorite foods.

If you’re ready to repair broken, cracked, or chipped teeth or want a full smile again, our Geismar, LA dental team is the one you can trust. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Weak / Worn Enamel: Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. That doesn’t mean, however, that it’s completely indestructible. Your enamel can be weakened by illness, genetics, acidic food, or poor oral hygiene. Unfortunately, tooth enamel can’t regenerate.

When your tooth enamel has been weakened or worn for whatever reason, dental crowns allow us to give it the strength it needs to function properly. Crowns also protect your enamel from any further damage.  

Call our office today and see if you might benefit from the added strength and protection dental crowns can offer.

Chips, Breaks, and Other Imperfections: Dental crowns don’t just serve a restorative function. They also can help the appearance of your smile when used to repair your chipped, broken, or cracked teeth. Not only can crowns correct such damage, but they improve the color and shape of your smile.

Infection, decay, even the foods you eat…all can have an adverse effect on the color of your teeth. Some stains are so deep that even professional whitening can’t bring it to the brightness level you want. Dental crowns go that extra mile in making your smile beautifully white and symmetrical.

There are so many things dental crowns can do for your the look and function of your smile. So why spend any more time hiding behind the damage and flaws you’ve tolerated for so many years?
