What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are custom-made caps that cover a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are used when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be repaired with a filling alone. Crowns can be made from various materials, including stainless steel, porcelain, and composite resins, and are designed to look and function like natural teeth.

Why Your Child Might Need a Dental Crown

There are several reasons why a child might need a dental crown, including:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: When a cavity is too large to be repaired with a filling, a crown can protect the remaining tooth structure.
  • Broken or Fractured Teeth: Crowns can restore the function and appearance of a tooth that has been broken or fractured.
  • After a Root Canal Treatment: A crown is often placed on a tooth after a root canal to protect it from further damage.
  • Cosmetic Improvements: Crowns can improve the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth.

Our Dental Crown Procedure

At Cibolo Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we ensure a comfortable and effective treatment process for dental crowns:

Comprehensive Examination

During your child's visit, our dentists will conduct a thorough examination, which may include:

  • Visual inspection of the teeth
  • Dental X-rays to assess the extent of the damage or decay
  • Discussion of the best treatment options for your child's needs

Preparing the Tooth

To prepare the tooth for a crown, we will:

  • Remove any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth
  • Shape the tooth to ensure a proper fit for the crown
  • Take impressions of the tooth to create a custom crown

Placing the Crown

Once the custom crown is ready, we will:

  • Check the fit and appearance of the crown
  • Cement the crown in place, ensuring it is securely attached
  • Make any necessary adjustments for comfort and function

Follow-Up Care

After the crown is placed, we will schedule follow-up visits to monitor the crown and ensure it is functioning correctly. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential to maintain the longevity of the crown.

 

Preventative Care to Avoid Crowns

Preventative care is key to avoiding the need for dental crowns. We offer several services and tips to help protect your child's teeth from damage and decay, including:

- Regular Cleanings and Exams: Routine dental cleanings and exams help keep your child's teeth healthy and free of plaque and tartar buildup.

- Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and helps prevent cavities.

- Dental Sealants: Sealants provide an additional layer of protection for the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where cavities are most likely to form.
