Dental Crowns in Elk Grove and Folsom, CA

No parent wants their kid to deal with toothaches or damaged teeth. Pediatric dental crowns are specially made for tiny teeth to restore those that have been too damaged by decay or injury to be repaired with a simple filling. Keep your child’s smile healthy as they grow and develop.

Why does my child need a dental crown?

Your child may need a dental crown if they have a severe cavity, a cracked or badly broken tooth, or a tooth that has been damaged by a large filling. Dental crowns can also be used to shield a tooth that has been discolored. Typically, crowns are tooth-shaped caps designed to fit over your baby’s natural tooth to help restore its functionality and promote a healthy smile.

The Dental Crowns Placement Process

First Dental Visit

At The Spot for Smiles, our dental crown placement process often requires at least two visits to complete. During the initial visit, Dr. Ian Marion will examine and prepare the tooth for crown placement. The dentist will take X-rays of the tooth and the surrounding area to check for signs of decay or infection.

Depending on the case, the dentist may recommend additional treatment before the crown is placed on your child’s teeth. An impression of the tooth will be created to enable the new crown to be crafted to fit the tooth perfectly. Your child will then be given a temporary crown to protect their existing tooth.

Second Dental Visit

Once the impressions are created, they are sent to a dental laboratory to develop a crown that is of the correct size and shape. The process can take two to three weeks. After the new crown is constructed, the temporary crown is removed and replaced with the new, custom-made one.

It is crucial to check if the crown has been made to fit over your child’s tooth correctly and that the crown's color blends with the natural teeth before it is eventually cemented. During crown placement, your child’s dentist may administer local anesthesia to numb the surrounding area during treatment.
