If your little one has extensive decay or a damaged tooth, a dental crown may be the best way to restore their smile. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rene Alingog and get the help they need.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped dental prostheses. They are designed to fit over your child’s tooth after it’s been trimmed. Their dental crown will fully cover their natural tooth structure, protecting it from further damage. Crowns are typically used to treat extensive decay, to restore teeth after root canal therapy or a pulpotomy, and to repair teeth that have been damaged by oral trauma.
It only takes one appointment for your child to get a stainless steel crown at Chula Vista Pediatric Dentistry.

We offer stainless steel crowns for baby teeth. Steel crowns are economical, highly effective at protecting teeth, and can be placed in just a single appointment at Chula Vista Pediatric Dentistry.

Stainless steel crowns are very affordable, and are typically covered by dental insurance up to applicable limits. This makes them ideal for treating baby teeth.
A crown totally covers up your child’s natural tooth, protecting it from further damage or decay. This helps prevent further dental complications.
With a dental crown, you’ll know that your child’s tooth is protected. You can get back to your normal routine without worrying about their oral health.
To begin the filling placement process, Dr. Rene will clean and numb your child’s mouth. Then, he will trim away decayed and damaged enamel, and reshape their tooth to ensure that their crown fits properly.
We have a wide variety of pre-fitted stainless steel crowns at our office. This means that Dr. Rene can place a crown right away, without waiting for a custom-built crown to be made. He will choose a crown that fits perfectly over your child’s tooth.
After cleaning and preparing the tooth and making sure the crown fits perfectly, Dr. Rene will attach your child’s crown using dental cement. Then, you’ll be sent home. You and your little one can get back to your daily routines right away.

No. Your child’s mouth will be numb during treatment, and we also offer sedation dentistry in Chula Vista to keep them comfortable. They may experience a little bit of discomfort after their treatment, but this should go away within a day or two.
Stainless steel dental crowns are very durable, and typically last at least four years or more. As long as they maintain good oral hygiene, your child’s crown will last until their baby tooth falls out naturally.
Fillings are usually recommended for smaller cavities. However, if your child has a large cavity or significant tooth damage, a dental crown is usually a better option. To find out which option is right for your child, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Rene at Chula Vista Pediatric Dentistry.
