Enjoy the specialist care of a dentist who knows how to use crowns in children for the restoration of damaged, decayed or lost teeth.
CROWNS FOR CHILDREN
Paediatric crowns are caps that are specially engineered and created to restore the damaged teeth in children. The needs of children are different to adults and the specialist care of an experienced children’s dentist will ensure the crowns used are optimally suited for their baby teeth (milk teeth) or new adult teeth while they are still in beginning stages of their development.
Most people question the need for crowns in these tiny humans, but crowns will help maintain bite alignment and provide the necessary teeth spacing for the child while their teeth are still growing and developing. It is also extremely useful in addressing weak teeth or to cover implants and root canal procedures to ensure they enjoy good oral health in preparation for a healthy future for their teeth.

A preliminary appointment with your dentist will assess your child’s teeth and needs, take the necessary x-rays and determine the right number of veneers. They also need to assess whether there are any other underlying issues around their teeth and oral health to ensure the procedure is suitable for your child. During the treatment the dentist will trim the top of their teeth and make an impression of them which is then used to create the veneers that will fit perfectly into their mouth. Once they get the shaped teeth back from the laboratory, they can create a rough texture on the old tooth and cement the new tooth on top using the same material the veneer is made of.
