Pediatric Dental Crowns in Herndon

Cavities in children’s teeth can become so large that simple fillings cannot restore the tooth. A crown (cap) is used to restore proper shape to your child’s tooth. A crown is a premade cap which has been trimmed and fitted to your child’s tooth above the gum line. It is long lasting material in the mouth. It serves quite well for the life of baby teeth and may be used.

Crowns mays be recommended when the tooth is broken or badly decayed and cannot be repaired by normal fillings. It may also be used to prevent breakage of a tooth which has a pulpotomy (partial removal of a nerve).
