Dental crowns or commonly known as ‘caps’ are generally used to treat larger cavities and/or to strengthen a weaker tooth. It also helps to restore the shape of the teeth in some cases. Different dental crowns are available for children, such as: pre-formed stainless steel crowns, strip crowns, and zirconia crowns. Each of them has its unique benefits and methods of use.
What are the benefits?
Crowns help with chewing food properly during their critical developmental years.
Crowns are also crucial to maintain space and hold primary teeth until permanent teeth are ready to erupt.
Crowns help in restoring larger cavities or cracks in teeth. However, every tooth needs an evaluation prior to treatment.
