What Are Dental Crowns?

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.

A crown totally covers up your child’s natural tooth, protecting it from further damage or decay. This helps prevent further dental complications.

Prep and tooth trimming

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
