What Are Pediatric Dental Crowns?

Pediatric dental crowns are an excellent solution for enhancing your child's smile and promoting optimal oral health. These custom-made tooth caps cover damaged or decayed teeth, providing protection, strength, and aesthetics. Whether your child has a fractured tooth or severe tooth decay, pediatric dental crowns can restore their smile and boost their confidence.

Tooth Preparation

The damaged tooth will be gently reshaped to accommodate the dental crown. A temporary crown may be placed while the permanent one is being crafted in the lab.

Types of Pediatric Dental Crowns Treatment

View our services

Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are a popular choice for their durability and cost-effectiveness. These prefabricated crowns are ideal for restoring back teeth and can withstand the pressures of chewing and biting.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns offer excellent aesthetics and durability. Made from a strong ceramic material, these crowns blend seamlessly with natural teeth and are suitable for both front and back teeth.

Composite Resin Crowns

Composite resin crowns provide a natural-looking restoration and are often used for visible front teeth. They are carefully sculpted and color-matched to blend harmoniously with your child's smile.


How Do I Know If My Child Needs a Crown?

If your child has a severely decayed or damaged tooth, experiences tooth sensitivity or pain, or has undergone a root canal treatment, a dental crown may be recommended. Dr. Su Kim will conduct a thorough examination to determine if a crown is an appropriate treatment.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

When children receive a dental crown for a baby tooth at a young age, it is designed to last until the tooth naturally falls out. Generally, baby teeth are expected to be replaced by permanent teeth between the ages of 10 and 11. Therefore, a pediatric dental crown for a baby tooth can typically endure for a few years until the natural tooth transition occurs.
