At Southern Stars Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the oral health of our young patients. When a child’s tooth is damaged or decayed, a pediatric dental crown can be a vital treatment to restore its strength and functionality. Our team is skilled in providing dental crowns specifically designed for children, ensuring a comfortable and effective solution for their dental needs.

What are Pediatric Dental Crowns?

Pediatric dental crowns are custom-made caps placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and appearance. They are used when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling or other dental treatments. These crowns are designed to be both durable and aesthetically pleasing, providing a long-term solution for damaged primary (baby) teeth.

The Process of Fitting Pediatric Dental Crowns

Fitting a dental crown typically involves:

  • Assessing the damaged tooth to determine the need for a crown.
  • Preparing the tooth by removing any decay and shaping it for the crown.
  • Selecting the appropriate type and size of the crown.
  • Placing the crown over the tooth and making necessary adjustments for a perfect fit.

Benefits of Pediatric Dental Crowns

  • Custom Fit: Tailored to each child’s unique dental anatomy.
