As a parent, you do all you can to make sure your child grows up with the best oral health and the happiest possible smile. Even with good home hygiene, decay and traumatic injuries can happen and affect the integrity of a primary tooth.
We try to keep your child’s primary teeth intact whenever possible until the permanent teeth erupt, which is when restoring teeth with pediatric dental crowns become a good option.
Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve a tooth’s shape or to strengthen it. Crowns are most often used if the child has a tooth that is broken, worn, or damaged by tooth decay, and too damaged to hold a filling.
Our office offers stainless steel and zirconia crowns for primary teeth.
