Dental Pediatric Crowns

Pediatric Dentist in Hoffman Estates, IL

Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay and cracks. A stainless steel crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth.

Dental crowns can:

  1. Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  2. Hold a cracked tooth together
  3. Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
  4. Restore a broken or severely worn tooth

Also, stainless steel crowns are sometimes used in conjunction with pulpotomies (baby root canals). 

Crowns are typically made from stainless steel to provide both strength for baby teeth until they are ready to exfoliate. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years.
