There are many reasons for pediatric dental crowns. A large amount of decay or a fracture to the tooth are the most common reasons for pediatric dental crowns. Rather than filling a cavity, a dental crown helps to protect the entire tooth.
Your child’s first and second molars come in between the ages of 2-3 and last 10-12 years. Dental crowns on the child’s molars, or any other baby teeth, allow the teeth to last for their lifetime expectancy.
Coastal Pediatric Dentistry offers several types of crowns including stainless steel crowns and white “tooth-colored” crowns.
The most commonly used crowns by dentists are stainless steel dental crowns. This type of dental crown is often used for posterior (back) molars. These are durable, strong, and resistant to moisture and a child’s growing and developing mouth.
Cubic zirconia dental crowns (white crowns) are made with tooth colored material. These can be used on front or back teeth!
