What is a Dental Crown?

WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN:

Dental crowns are personalized “caps” that are meant to cover the entire surface of a damaged or decayed tooth above the gum line. As one of the most well-known restorative treatments out there, you can expect our service to be versatile and tailored specifically to your child’s dental needs. We’re able to construct our dental crowns out of either zirconia or stainless steel—whichever choice is best for your little one.

In many cases, this restorative treatment will be recommended for patients struggling with:

  • A large area of dental decay
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Weak enamel or dental structure
  • Dark dental stains or discoloration

We might even suggest providing your child a dental crown if they have just undergone other treatments, such as pulp therapy.

The Dental Crown Process

It typically takes around a couple of appointments to complete this restorative treatment. Your child’s first visit will involve an initial consultation where we’ll evaluate their oral health and smile to determine if this restoration option is for them. If it is, we’ll prepare your little one for the procedure by first removing a tiny portion of their enamel so that the dental cap can fit perfectly on their affected tooth. We’ll take impressions of their smile and send them to a dental lab for construction. We’ll then place a temporary crown on their tooth for protection while they wait.

After we’ve received your little one’s crown, they’ll return to our office so we can bond it to their tooth. We’ll make sure to polish their restoration until it looks and feels perfect with their smile. Our team will give you instructions on how your child can maintain their results so that they can make the most of their improved bite for as long as possible.
