Kids’ Dental Crowns

At Creekside Kids Dentistry, we offer a range of restorative dentistry solutions, including dental crowns, to repair damaged teeth and restore healthy smiles. Our compassionate team uses kid-friendly terms to explain the procedure and is always happy to answer questions. We never spare any effort to ensure our young patients are comfortable and free of stress before, during, and after treatment.  

Why Save Baby Teeth?

Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, keeping them healthy reflects on your child's long-term oral health. Baby teeth play a role in speech development and help your little one chew and eat, ensuring proper nutrition. They also act as placeholders, guiding the adult teeth to erupt their correct positions.

If a baby tooth falls out prematurely because of deep decay or damage, the neighboring teeth may shift toward the gap, leading to crooked adult teeth and problems with the bite. That usually means a child will need orthodontic treatment down the road.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Kids' dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that cover the parts of the teeth visible over the gums, restoring their strength and function. Dental crowns protect baby teeth until their permanent replacements are ready to come in.

At Creekside Kids Dentistry, we offer stainless steel crowns to restore young smiles. The silver-colored restorations come prefabricated in different sizes, and are easily placed over damaged teeth without the need for molds or impressions. Stainless steel crowns are incredibly strong and durable, withstanding the chewing pressures and daily wear and tear.

We are also pleased to offer Bioflex crowns for kids made from a high-impact, biocompatible, hybrid resin polymer. Bioflex crowns are the world's first visually appealing, flexible, self-adaptable, and durable pre-formed dental crowns. They provide a natural-looking, incredibly durable solution to restore your child's teeth, combining the benefits of stainless steel and tooth-colored zirconia. Bioflex crowns take restoring kids' teeth to the next level!

Why Would My Child Need a Dental Crown

Here are some reasons why your child may require a dental crown:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: Tooth decay, left untreated, can become so extensive that a traditional filling can no longer restore the health and function of the affected tooth. A crown will help protect the remaining tooth structure and prevent further decay or damage.
  • A Cracked or Broken Tooth: An accident or sports injury can lead to a cracked or broken tooth. If the damage is extensive, we may recommend a dental crown to protect the tooth from further damage.
  • After a Baby Root Canal: A tooth that's undergone a baby root canal may become susceptible to fracture or breakage. A crown can help protect the tooth and prevent further infection or damage.

Preventing the Need for Dental Crowns

The best way to protect your child's smile and prevent the need for a dental crown is to be proactive and maintain excellent oral hygiene. Encourage regular brushing and flossing to remove plaque and food debris, lowering the risk of cavities. It's also important to keep up with your child's regular, twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings. Treating dental problems as they develop will prevent the need for extensive treatments down the road.
