What Are Pediatric Dental Crowns?

Pediatric dental crowns in Gilbert, AZ cover a tooth, restoring it to the appropriate size and shape, while providing strength and protection from cracks or breaks. A child’s crown is necessary when a tooth is significantly broken down, and a filling won’t repair it effectively.

What Types of Children’s Crowns Are Available?

Islands Pediatric Dentistry provides the following crown materials:

  • Stainless steel
  • White zirconia (white capes)
  • Zirconia for permanent teeth

How Are Children’s Crowns Placed?

Placement of pediatric dental crowns is performed in our dental office. Children receive local anesthesia, and once numbed, you Gilbert pediatric dentist will remove the decay, or other affected parts of the tooth. Dr. Rez will also shape the damaged structure to the proper form before placing the appropriate type of dental crown. Children’s crowns are custom made to fit perfectly over the weakened tooth. The correctly fitted crown is then cemented in place. After the procedure, super hard and sticky foods should be avoided to prevent fractures in the new crown and slippage.
