If your child has a damaged tooth, our pediatric dentists may recommend a dental crown to restore it and give them back a healthy smile. Little Smiles Pediatric Dentistry offers porcelain and zirconia crowns to give your child a natural-looking smile after their treatment.

Children’s teeth are at great risk for developing cavities. As your child’s teeth play an incredibly important role in their oral health and development, it is vital that they receive proper care. Baby teeth that have sustained significant damage are unlikely to be restored using a filling, and our pediatric dentists may instead recommend a dental crown. Our office provides tooth-colored dental crowns that can restore your child’s teeth while also giving them back a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
Dental crowns have many benefits, including:
- Complete protection for the tooth
- Little to no tooth sensitivity after treatment
- Reduced likelihood that further treatment will be needed
- Greater success in restoring a tooth than fillings in young children
- Effective space maintenance for the permanent teeth
It may take two appointments to complete your child’s treatment and provide them with a crown. During the first appointment, we will prepare them to receive the crown, including taking impressions. During the second appointment, our pediatric dentists will place the final crown. Throughout your child’s entire experience, we will make every effort to ensure that they feel comfortable and at ease.
