See the Beauty and Benefits of Porcelain Crowns for Kids

Many children don’t feel good about their smile because it’s damaged or discolored. Luckily, you can improve your child’s smile and their overall confidence by getting them porcelain crowns. This is a common dental treatment that offers outstanding cosmetic and restorative results. Pediatric dentists often recommend porcelain crowns for children because they’re stronger than other dental treatments and can last for years with proper care. A porcelain crown can provide many dental benefits, including:

  • Improving the smile’s overall appearance
  • Correcting chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Filling gaps in teeth
  • Re-shaping crooked teeth
  • Covering badly decayed or damaged teeth
  • Masking stained or discolored teeth

Take a Better Look at the Porcelain Crown Procedure

When considering porcelain crowns for children, it’s important to know that they’re only used on a child’s permanent teeth. They are made of a tooth-colored porcelain and are custom-created in a dental lab to fit your child’s smile. The procedure involves these steps:

  1. At the first dental visit, the pediatric dentist will take impressions of your child’s teeth.
  2. At this time, some of the natural tooth structure will need to be removed to allow the porcelain crown to fit. But a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth until the final crown is created.
  3. A few weeks later, your child will return to the dental office and their custom-made porcelain crowns will be placed on their teeth.
  4. Your child may require follow-up dental visits to check on their satisfaction and comfort.

Cover all the Considerations of Porcelain Crowns for Children

Porcelain crowns can correct many cosmetic and restorative dental problems. They are also stain-resistant, durable, and can last for many years. Yet it’s important to be aware that porcelain crowns affect more of the tooth’s natural structure than other treatment options, as well as costing a bit more. But the excellent results and durability they offer make them well worth it to many. Carefully weigh these factors and talk to your pediatric dentist to see if porcelain crowns are the perfect fit for your child’s smile.

What Our Patients Say About Us

“The last time my son had seen a dentist was about three years ago because he refused to go to another one until now due to bad experiences. We got lucky picking Main Street Dental! I was so impressed with the office. The office is very opened and parents are welcomed back with the children. I absolutely loved our dental assistant.. She was very informative and explained everything to my son before she did anything. She was amazingly patient and kind the entire visit. She took xray and cleaned his teeth and explained to him what the dentist Dr. B would be doing. She stayed with us the entire time even while the dentist was in the room. The dentist was also very informative and nice and answered any questions I had. They also explained how my son’s next visit was going to be (he has to get fillings). The entire visit was only an hour long. Huge thumbs up to Main Street Dental of Cape Coral! I have been and will gladly still recommend them for pediatric dentistry!!!!!”
