Here at Gilroy Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to offer dental restorations to help protect and restore children’s teeth so that they can speak and eat easily as well as have a wonderful smile.
We are usually able to fill in broken teeth to make them look like normal teeth. We even use a cement that is the color of your child’s teeth. If that does not work, we offer crowns to cover up any broken teeth.
A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons. A crown covers the tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look better. We offer primarily 2 types of crowns, zirconia, or stainless steel crowns.
Crowns have a variety of uses. In some cases that require a large filling, there isn’t enough tooth remaining to keep the filling in place. A crown can strengthen the tooth and hold the filling. Crowns can also protect teeth that are weak, or help fix ones that are broken. Discolored or misshaped teeth can be covered by a crown. Crowns play an important role in dental health, and if your child is in need of one, please contact our office today.
