Children’s Crowns: Don’t Let Your Experiences Worry You

You may not have had the best of experiences with your own crowns growing up or even as an adult. While we understand that this may strongly influence your feelings about restorative care in general, we encourage you to start with a clean slate, should your child require a dental crown. Before you assume your little one or teen is going to have the same experience as you, take a moment to consider the fact that we’ve taken care to provide a wonderful journey with crowns for your son or daughter.

The Crown Can Look Natural

If your child requires a dental crown on a back tooth that absolutely nobody can see, then we may suggest stainless steel. However, for any tooth that is even partially visible, if you want your child’s grin to look completely natural, we offer zirconia crowns. They are lifelike restorations that mimic the appearance of teeth, which means the crown will blend beautifully with your child’s smile. The treated tooth will simply look like a healthy tooth, whether it’s in the front or back.

The Crown Will Be Comfortable

Yes, we know that metal crowns can lead to sensitivity for some patients as a result of extremes in temperature. If this is something you’ve experienced, we remind you that zirconia dental crowns do not include any metal and, as a result, do not yield sensitivity due to temperature changes. Instead, your child will quickly adjust to the restoration and will likely forget all about it because the crowned tooth will just seem like another tooth!
