Pediatric Dental Crowns in Montclair, NJ

Pediatric dental crowns are a highly effective treatment used to restore the health and function of a child's tooth that has been affected by decay or damage. Unlike fillings, which just fill in a small portion of the tooth, a dental crown covers the entire visible part of the tooth. This provides more protection and prevents further damage. It's a common procedure performed by pediatric dentists like Dr. Reesha Shah at Fresh Pediatric Dentistry in Montclair, NJ. With her expertise and gentle approach, she ensures that the process is comfortable and stress-free for your little one.

Why Should My Child Get a Dental Crown?

When a child's tooth is severely decayed or damaged, a simple filling might not be enough to save it. In such cases, a pediatric dental crown is often the best option. Dental crowns not only restore the tooth's shape, size, and function, but they also protect the tooth from further decay or damage. They're durable and can withstand the wear and tear of biting and chewing so your child can smile with confidence.

The Benefits Of Pediatric Dental Crowns

Restores Tooth Function

A decayed or damaged tooth can make it difficult for your child to eat or speak properly. A dental crown restores the tooth's function, allowing your child to chew food comfortably and speak clearly. It's a long-term solution that can significantly improve your child's oral health and overall well-being.

Protects Against Further Damage

A dental crown acts as a shield, covering the entire tooth and protecting it from further decay or damage. This is particularly important for baby teeth, which hold the space for permanent teeth. Losing a baby tooth prematurely can lead to alignment issues with the permanent teeth.

Looks and Feels Like a Natural Tooth

Pediatric dental crowns come in a variety of materials, including stainless steel and tooth-colored white zirconia. White zirconia crowns look and feel just like a natural tooth, making them a great choice for protecting damaged teeth in the front of the mouth.

The Pediatric Dental Crowns Treatment Process

Selection and Fitting

The initial phase involves a comprehensive examination of your child's mouth by Dr. Shah. This includes taking X-rays and evaluating the extent of decay or damage. Should a dental crown be deemed necessary, Dr. Shah will select a pre-fabricated crown from a range of sizes and shapes to find the best fit for your child's tooth. The tooth will then be carefully prepared by removing any decay or damaged areas and reshaping it slightly to ensure the crown fits securely.

Customizing the Crown

While pediatric dental crowns are pre-fabricated, slight adjustments might be needed to ensure a perfect fit for your child's specific dental structure. Dr. Shah will make any necessary adjustments to the chosen crown, ensuring it aligns well with your child's bite and matches the natural shape of their teeth as closely as possible. No impressions are sent to a dental lab since the crown is already pre-made, streamlining the process and reducing wait times.
