What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, often referred to as a tooth cap, is a protective covering that encases the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. Essentially, it acts as a shield, strengthening the tooth, preventing further oral health issues, and enhancing the aesthetic of your child’s smile.

When is a Tooth Cap Necessary?

Our experienced children’s dentists assess each child’s dental health to determine if a tooth cap is needed. Typically, tooth crowns are recommended in situations such as:

– Large cavities threatening oral health
– Severe damage from trauma or decay
– Worn-down, discolored, or misshapen teeth

Rest assured, our team at the Pediatric Dental Center prioritizes your child’s comfort throughout the procedure, ensuring a virtually painless experience.

What to Expect During the Procedure

If your child requires a dental crown, here’s what you can expect:

1. Preparation: Our dentists will numb the area around the tooth, ensuring your child’s comfort throughout the procedure.

2. Placement: We’ll carefully prepare the tooth, removing any decay or bacteria, before securely bonding the custom-designed crown in place.

3. Final Touches: Once the crown is in place, we’ll make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and polish the cap for a beautiful smile.

Benefits of Tooth Crowns

Dental crowns offer numerous benefits, including:

– Protection against tooth breakage
Restoration of cracked or worn-down teeth
– Preservation of smile spacing and bite
– Boosted confidence with a restored, beautiful smile
