Crowns are a type of restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay.
Crowns are “cemented” onto an existing tooth and fully cover the portion of your child’s tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns from Dental Land Pediatrics are made from stainless steel, aesthetic resin-coated stainless steel, or zirconia/ceramic.
