There are many reasons why our pediatric dentist may recommend placing a dental crown on your child's primary teeth. In some cases, the tooth may be severely decayed or damaged and a crown is necessary to restore it. In other cases, a crown may be placed to prevent further decay or damage to the tooth. Crowns can be placed on both primary and permanent teeth.
Does My Child Need A Dental Crown?
Signs your child may need a kid's dental crown:
Sometimes Dr. Cory will recommend primary teeth get a dental crown due to the above. Once their tooth falls out, the crown will go with it.
All-White Dental Crowns
Here at Dickerson Dental Group, we are a mercury-free office. All children's dental crowns are all-white and shade matched to the child's adjacent teeth. These are more aesthetically pleasing, blend in with the rest of the teeth and can be important for kid's self esteem.
Treatment: What to Expect
If our pediatric dentist recommends placing a dental crown on your child's primary teeth, they will first numb the area around the tooth. They will then shape the tooth so that the crown can be placed over it. Once the crown is in place, your child will need to take good care of their teeth to ensure that the crown lasts as long as possible. With proper care, kids' dental crowns can last for many years.
Real Patient Testimonials
"My five year old just had his first visit and cleaning with their pediatric dentist Dr. Cory at Dickerson Dental Group. We previously had been to a different pediatric practice and I was nervous to change but my son LOVED his experience there today. Dr. Cory was patient and explained every single step of the process. She demonstrated each tool she was going to use and eased his anxieties."
"Dr. Cory is AMAZING with my baby! She's been the 1st and only pediatric dentist my baby has seen since she was about 10 months old and her 1st tooth grew in. Dr. Corry and her assistants have been amazing with my little one and this new mommy putting me at ease."
"Just moved to town and needed a new dentist for the kids. They are such a wonderful practice and the kids felt so comfortable. Highly recommend. Dr Cory is the best!"
