Your child’s dental health is of paramount importance, and when their baby teeth suffer significant damage, dental crowns can come to the rescue. Here at Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we provide both stainless steel crowns and tooth-colored zirconia crowns to restore your child’s baby teeth and give them back a healthy smile.
Stainless steel crowns, often used in pediatric dentistry, are renowned for their durability and strength. These crowns provide complete protection to the affected tooth, ensuring its functionality while safeguarding it against further decay. One notable advantage is that they typically result in little to no post-treatment tooth sensitivity, which is crucial for a child’s comfort. Stainless steel crowns are also more effective in restoring baby teeth compared to fillings, as they offer a longer-lasting solution. Furthermore, they aid in maintaining proper spacing for the incoming permanent teeth.
Tooth-colored zirconia crowns, on the other hand, offer a more aesthetically pleasing option. They blend seamlessly with the natural teeth, providing a beautiful and natural appearance as well as offering many of the same benefits as a stainless steel crown.
The process of getting a dental crown for your child typically involves two appointments. During the initial visit, our pediatric dentist will prepare their tooth and take impressions. The second appointment involves the placement of the final crown. Throughout this process, our team prioritizes your child’s comfort and wellbeing, taking care to ensure that your child feels at ease.
