Fully restore your child's damaged teeth and preserve their natural smile.
A dental crown is a cap for a damaged tooth that can cover either a portion or the entire tooth. Tooth decay can naturally spread, and crowns are an excellent method of stopping the spread. They can be made of a wide variety of materials including: porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or composite resin.
Your child’s specific situation will always dictate whether or not they need a crown for their teeth. Here at Small World Dental, our pediatric dentists in Staten Island recommend dental crowns for many different reasons, including when:
Your child’s tooth is missing
Your child’s tooth is worn down, or cracked
A cavity has grown too large for a filling
Your child’s tooth is weak
And, assorted other situations
Did you know?
