Teeth are one of the strongest parts of your body. Still, they can break, crack, or experience tooth decay. A tooth may still be healthy, yet need some extra protection and support. One option for restoring health to your child’s tooth is with a dental crown.
What are Dental Crowns?
Imagine a cap that you wear. A crown is similar. It looks like your tooth and fits permanently over the tooth needing treatment. This helps protect the tooth from bacteria and provides support for proper speaking and biting and chewing. We offer stainless steel crowns and NuSmile Zirconia crowns, which are more natural looking and are color-matched to the surrounding teeth. These crowns can be placed on front and back teeth and can withstand strong bite forces.
What is the Treatment Like?
When your child needs a dental crown, we’ll begin by cleaning the tooth needing treatment. We’ll take an impression of the tooth, and a model will be made by a dental lab. When the crown is ready, you’ll visit us again and we’ll permanently place it on the tooth.
