Options in dental crowns for kids in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
A crown is a hollow tooth-shaped cap. It fits over modified natural tooth structure, restoring appearance and function while allowing the root to remain intact. The doctors at Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry offer several types of tooth caps, to fit the needs of patients and the budgets of parents.
A no metal zirconia crown is an extremely natural looking choice for a front restoration on baby teeth. A stainless-steel crown can save a baby molar from extraction, allowing the primary tooth to remain as a place keeper until the adult tooth emerges.
Benefits of this tooth-saving technique
A dental crown is commonly used to repair a severely decayed tooth with a cavity too large to support a filling. Your dentist may also recommend a crown when a child’s tooth is cracked or broken.
Why not simply extract problematic teeth? Even one missing tooth can cause a cascade effect on your child’s mouth, triggering:
- Crooked baby teeth that spoil the appearance of the smile and are more prone to decay
- Misalignment of adult teeth
- Malocclusion (bite problems) and TMJ disorders
- Speech impediment
- Difficulty chewing properly
Preserving your child’s teeth now can help to avoid discomfort, inconvenience, and expense throughout life.
