If your child’s tooth is significantly damaged or decayed, our pediatric dentist may recommend a dental crown. A crown is a dental restoration used for a tooth that requires a more extensive, complete restoration than is provided by a dental filling. A dental crown provides complete coverage of a damaged tooth, starting at the gums. Dr. Rhonda Kavee will ensure that your child’s dental crown in New York, New York matches the shape and size of their natural teeth for a restoration that is effective, comfortable, and durable. At ABC Dentistry RMR, we offer dental crowns made of stainless steel, ceramic or resin. Stainless steel is recommended in most cases and is very durable and silver in color - these crowns may be recommended for baby teeth (primary teeth) that will fall out. Porcelain is a stain-resistant, tooth-colored material that blends in with the natural appearance of your child’s smile. Resin is the most aesthetically appealing but least durable option. Dr. Rhonda Kavee is happy to help you decide which type of crown is right for your child’s smile.
In most cases, dental crowns can be completed in just one visit to our friendly pediatric dental office. Your child’s smile may require a crown in order to restore a severely damaged tooth, strengthen a cracked or weakened tooth, protect a tooth after endodontic treatment (such as root canal therapy), or replace a large dental filling. To learn more about the uses of dental crowns, we welcome you to contact us today. We are eager to restore your child’s beautiful, healthy smile!
