Dental Crowns

Sometimes the recommended treatment for a decayed or fractured baby tooth will be a dental pediatric crown.

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a cap placed over an existing tooth that has been damaged or decayed. This will strengthen the tooth and help prevent the further damage, but it’s still important for your child to continue good brushing and flossing habits.

Even though your child’s primary (baby) teeth will eventually fall out, some teeth are still present during middle school, and even high school. Dr. Lenard will evaluate the tooth in question to determine the best treatment option(s) for your child.  

What is the Dental Crowns Process?

Once the treatment area is numbed, we’ll remove the decay and clean the tooth. The tooth will then be shaped to fit the custom-made crown, and then the crown is cemented on. This happens in one visit, unlike an adult crown that may take multiple appointments. 

What are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

  • Strengthen teeth
  • Protect teeth
  • Simple procedure
  • Preserve natural form and function of your child’s mouth
