Tooth Colored Crown for Kids in Valencia

Tooth Colored Crown for Kids in
				Valencia

If your child develops cavities that eat deep into the tooth structure, a dental filling may not be enough to restore the tooth's shape and functioning. A tooth-colored dental crown would be a more rewarding remedy not only because it fully encases the damage but also because it has a natural tooth shade, which is important to your child's self-esteem.

Dental crowns typically require two office visits. We have expounded the procedure further below to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Preparation of the tooth

Once both you and the dentist agree that a crown would be suitable for your child, the damaged tooth will be shaped to accommodate the crown. If the decay damage is too extensive, a filling will be applied to offer support to the crown.

Impressions

Your dentist will take impressions of the prepared tooth using dental putty or a digital scanner. These impressions will be sent to a lab where the crown will be fabricated.

Also, this being a tooth-colored crown, the dentist will have to select a shade that matches the adjacent teeth.

Temporary crown

The procedure will continue in another appointment when the crown is ready. Meanwhile, a temporary crown will be mounted on the prepared tooth.

Fitting

On the second appointment, the permanent crown will be fitted. A local anesthetic may be used to numb the tooth and the gum tissue around it for a comfortable and pain-free procedure.

The crown has been fitted, what next?

Crowns do not require any special care. They are not immune to decay and gum disease either. For a longer lifespan, ensure your child follows proper oral hygiene and doesn't discriminate the repaired tooth.
