Pediatric Crowns in Levittown

An Effective Treatment for Decayed or Damaged Teeth

Pediatric dental crowns may be recommended when a back tooth has a cavity, suffered trauma, or after baby root canal therapy. At Little Smiles of Levittown, we offer pediatric crowns in Levittown to restore the strength and function of a tooth, as well as to protect it from further damage until the tooth falls out naturally.

If you have questions about pediatric crowns or want to schedule an appointment, please contact our office at (516) 217-8910.

Benefits of Pediatric Crowns

Pediatric dental crowns are used to restore teeth that are damaged by trauma or decay. Parents often wonder if a crown is necessary or if it would be better to just pull the broken, cracked, or decayed tooth since it is going to fall out eventually anyway. However, there are several benefits to restoring teeth with pediatric crowns in Levittown.

Pediatric crowns help to:

  • Allow the tooth to fall out normally
  • Preserve a tooth that is not ready to come out
  • Save space for the adult tooth to grow in normally
  • Prevent the gap from closing after a tooth is pulled

There are a few different materials used to make pediatric crowns, including tooth-colored materials and stainless steel crowns. Although the tooth-colored materials blend better with the rest of the natural teeth, stainless steel offers a few key advantages. The strength and durability of stainless steel often make it a better choice for use in children.

The Pediatric Crown Procedure

After root canal therapy on a baby tooth is completed, the remaining decay is removed and the tooth is filed down. A prefabricated crown is then placed on the baby tooth and will remain attached (cemented) to the tooth until the tooth is ready to fall out. The entire procedure is completed in one visit.
