A crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well to restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure. A tooth that has been treated with pulp therapy will require a crown to provide strength and support to the tooth. Recommendations will be discussed in detail during the examination/consultation appointment.
Crowns For Front Teeth
A resin crown is made from white resin, which is a moldable material used to restore teeth. We do our best to make sure they look as good as natural teeth, but it is important to note that they are not as strong as the natural tooth structure. Avoid biting down hard, grinding or biting fingernails. Also avoid eating hard food and candy.
Crowns For Back Teeth
A stainless steel crown is typically used for primary molar teeth as they will be used for hard chewing. The crown will help protect the tooth as your child grows and as they bite down into their favorite foods.
