RESTORING FUNCTION WITH
When a tooth is damaged or a cavity becomes too deep or large for a filling to be effective, children’s crowns are often our next course of action It’s also the recommended restoration following a root canal treatment. A dental crown is a custom-made restoration that caps the natural tooth, restoring it to full function for many years to come. The procedure is involves administering a local anaesthetic (such as The Wand™), and filing the natural tooth down to a shape that will best accommodate the crown.
Unlike adult crowns, crowns for children’s baby teeth are pre-manufactured in different sizes and shapes, then adjusted by the dentist in situ for the perfect fit. Children’s crowns can be made from metal or tooth-coloured ceramic (your dentist will talk you and your child through the benefits of both options), and are durable enough to last until the natural tooth falls out.
