In some cases, the best option for restoring a tooth is with the use of a dental crown. Crowns are most commonly placed over teeth with larger, more extensive cavities. Once the decay has been removed from these teeth, there isn’t enough remaining healthy tooth structure left for a composite filling to be successful. In other teeth, the decay may not be deep but it may affect multiple tooth surfaces which can all be restored with a single crown. Crowns can also be used to protect and restore teeth with developmental defects which put those teeth at risk.
We offer both Stainless Steel Crowns and white all-ceramic zirconia pediatric crowns. Each type of crown has its own set of advantages. We can help you determine which type of crown would be best for your child’s individual situation.
