For children whose teeth receive extensive damage or who receive pulp treatments, Dr. Suk Young Ahn may recommend a dental crown as a restoration.
A pedo crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is made to fit comfortably over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Pedo crowns are made of stainless steel.
Your child’s smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes. When your child visits our practice, we will help you know whether your of your child’s dental needs can be treated with a pedo crown.
