About Dental Crowns

When damage to a tooth is significant, we need to provide additional reinforcement through a dental crown. This restoration essentially replaces the entire top and side portions of the tooth.

If crowns are needed for the front teeth, we offer Zirconia (white) crowns for aesthetics.

If crowns are needed on the back baby molars, Stainless Steel Crowns (silver) are the gold standard due to its flexibility and strength. However, pending case selection by the Doctor, there may be instances where Zirconia (white) crowns can be chosen.

Who is a candidate for dental crowns?

Dental crowns may be needed when a child has a tooth that is decayed, cracked, or damaged. However, it's best to come in for a dental exam before making a decision. We may take images of the affected area to assess the extent of the damage and then make a recommendation. WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry dental crowns are made with high-quality materials and placed using state-of-the-art techniques to ensure the restoration looks good and stays firmly in place for as long as needed.

What to expect during dental crown treatment

WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry begins the dental crown process by cleaning and numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic. Dr. Lee always ensures your child feels safe and comfortable before proceeding. Next, we use special tools to remove any decay or damaged tissue. We then take an impression of the tooth so the crown can be made to fit perfectly. A temporary crown may be placed over the prepared tooth to protect it until the permanent crown is ready.

Dental crowns FAQs

How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns are made from durable materials like sterling silver and gold to ensure long-lasting care. However, crowns are not indestructible and can chip or break if not properly treated. A pediatric dentist like Dr. Lee recommends daily brushing and flossing, in addition to regular check-ups, to keep your crown in good condition.

Why should I clean my dental crown?

Dental crowns don't require any special care. However, routine brushing prevents decay and gum disease at the base of the crown, where it's most vulnerable to issues. During bi-annual cleanings, the pediatric dentists at WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry can also remove plaque buildup and stains to keep your restorations and natural teeth looking clean and pristine.

Why should I choose a dental crown?

Dental crowns are a popular alternative to fillings and other restorations. Crowns are designed to protect your child's tooth from decay, and they can even restore the tooth's original structural shape and function. If you're unsure if a crown is right for their needs, ask about our options during a pediatric assessment.
