Dental Crowns & Bridges
At Lapalco Family Dental, we offer beautiful dental bridges and dental crowns in Marrero, LA to restore damaged or missing teeth.
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are restorations that are used to cover severely damaged teeth. They can also be used to protect a tooth after a root canal, change a tooth’s shape or appearance, or replace failing or worn restorations. Dr. Landry may recommend a dental crown for broken, decayed or lost teeth. Weak teeth that can no longer support fillings, inlays, or onlays, may also be restored with a dental crown.
What is a Dental Bridge?
If you have lost a tooth for any reason, you know the difficulties that come with it. From trouble eating to insecurities about your smile, missing a tooth can be difficult! Fortunately, Dr. C.J. Landry is well equipped to get you a smile you love with a dental bridge.
What is a dental bridge? A bridge is a dental restoration consisting of two crowns attached to a completely synthetic tooth. The two teeth on either side of the missing tooth are cleaned, prepped, and covered with the crowns, leaving you with a completely artificial tooth!
When you come to Lapalco Family Dental for a bridge, we’ll start by preparing your abutment teeth (the teeth that will be crowned), and then take an impression of your mouth. The impression is sent to a dental lab where they’ll use it to custom-make your bridge. In approximately two weeks, we’ll receive your bridge, and we’ll attach it at a second appointment. Then, you’re free to enjoy your new smile!
