Things To Remember: When A Crown Is Your Child’s Best Option

When we tell you that a dental crown is the best solution for your child’s smile, you may look at us in disbelief. If you think of crowns as treatments that adults get but you never really considered them a viable option for your child, we encourage you to remember that this is very common! In addition, when it’s what your child needs, you can feel relieved as you get on board and ensure you protect your son or daughter’s oral health. So, what to keep in mind, so you continue to feel optimistic and understand why we chose the crown route? We can answer that!

We Offer Beautiful Crowns!

First, remember that any worries you have about what a dental crown will mean for the way your child’s smile looks, how your child views his or her smile, and other esthetic concerns can be let go. We offer zirconia crowns. They are appropriate for teeth anywhere in your child’s smile and are customized to fit beautifully. This is in reference not only to the shape and dimensions of the crown but also to the fact that we will match the color, so nobody knows your child has a restoration except you.

It’s Absolutely Necessary

Yes, this is absolutely essential. Let’s talk a bit about why we may choose a dental crown instead of, perhaps, the filling you were expecting. If your child has a mild cavity, we can place a filling. However, if your child’s cavity is too large or severe, if your child’s tooth is damaged in some other way and we must restore the tooth’s structure, or if your child’s tooth is in serious danger of becoming cracked or broken, we want to protect it. This calls for a crown, which offers complete coverage.
