frisco kids crowns

When a child sustains a serious injury to a tooth, or one develops a serious case of decay or infection, then we may prescribe a dental crown. For a durable but more lifelike looking option, we can create zirconia crowns! At our Frisco, TX, dentist office, we’re ready to improve the function, health, and beauty of little smiles.

Oral Health Issues That Call for Restorations

Children could benefit from crown placement for a number of reasons. For example, if the cavity is too severe for a filling, or if the tooth has developed infection, then a restoration may be needed. Placement could also help improve bite balance and chewing function too, and we could use them to repair dental damage your child sustains. We recommend repairing teeth, even baby teeth, because the time between when an injury or oral health concern develops and when the tooth falls out naturally could be weeks, months, or even years. Lack of care means an infection that could spread to the other parts of the smile, cause premature tooth loss, and lead to misalignment in some cases.

Creating Your Child’s Restoration

Each one will be custom-made for your child’s smile, ensuring a proper fit, balanced bite, and of course, a natural appearance. Zirconia is often used to create crowns and dental prosthetics for adults because the material is very strong and durable, able to withstand daily bite forces and pressures, while also being shaded to blend with the rest of the smile. We start by gently numbing the tooth and then removing structure to make room for the restoration. In addition to a local numbing agent, we could discuss sedation to help your little one stay calm and comfortable. We then take detailed images on the tooth to design and fabricate the zirconia crown. We then attach the finished restoration with a powerful bonding agent.

Protecting Little Smiles

Zirconia crowns can last a long time, and handle the daily pressures and bite forces that natural teeth sustain. To help ensure their longevity, and to protect natural teeth too, make sure your little one brushes and floss daily, eats a healthier diet, and of course, visits our team for a checkup and cleaning every six months. If you have any questions about how our team can treat little smiles and offer better oral health, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help your little ones enjoy their best possible smile!
