Quality Children’s Dental Restoration
In some cases, a child may need more than a filling to restore the tooth. If a tooth becomes cracked or chipped, we can place a dental crown to address the damage. Stainless steel dental crowns are very strong and can safeguard a tooth against further damage or decay. At Dental Associates of Moreno Valley, we can offer a stainless steel restoration to our young patients.
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a restoration designed to cover the entire visible portion of a tooth. They are made from a variety of materials, including ceramic or metal. At Dental Associates of Moreno Valley, our team can place stainless steel restorations. This metal can withstand powerful bite forces and protect the tooth from further episodes of decay or possibly infection.
Why Do My Kids Need One?
We may prescribe a dental crown to address a number of serious oral health concerns, including:
- Cracked teeth
- Broken/chipped teeth
- Teeth with severe decay
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth requiring root canal treatment
If you child has a damaged tooth or experiences persistent discomfort, arrange a consultation so the dentist can diagnose the issue.
What Does Placing One Involve?
The process begins with preparation. The dentist removes a small amount of structure from the tooth. Impressions will then be taken. The impressions allow the experts at a dental lab to fabricate the new restoration. Once complete, the dentist checks the fit and places the restoration using a powerful bonding agent.
