What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown, also known as a dental cap, is a custom-made restoration that covers a damaged or weakened tooth, providing both protection and aesthetic enhancement. Crafted from durable materials such as porcelain or metal alloys, dental crowns are designed to resemble the natural shape, color, and function of a healthy tooth. They encase the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line, providing stability and strength. Dental crowns not only restore the integrity of a tooth by providing a protective barrier, but they also enhance its appearance, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile. With the expertise of our dental team, your child’s dental crown will be meticulously crafted to ensure a comfortable fit and restore their tooth’s functionality, allowing them to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

Possible Signs Your Child Needs a Tooth Crown

  • Severe Tooth Decay: If your child has a tooth with extensive decay that cannot be repaired with a dental filling, a tooth crown may be necessary. Signs of severe tooth decay include visible holes or dark spots on the tooth, tooth sensitivity, or persistent toothaches.
  • Fractured or Cracked Tooth: A fractured or cracked tooth can cause pain and sensitivity, especially when biting or chewing. If your child has experienced trauma to the tooth or has a tooth with a noticeable crack, a dental crown can provide stability and protect the tooth from further damage.
  • Large Dental Filling: If your child has a tooth with a large dental filling, it may weaken the tooth structure over time. A dental crown can provide reinforcement and prevent the tooth from fracturing or breaking.
  • Weakened Tooth: Some conditions or treatments, such as tooth grinding (bruxism) or root canal therapy, can weaken a tooth. In such cases, a dental crown can provide strength and support to the weakened tooth structure.
  • Cosmetic Enhancement: In certain cases, dental crowns can be used for cosmetic purposes. If your child has a discolored, misshapen, or severely stained tooth, a dental crown can improve its appearance and restore a natural, uniform look to their smile.
