At Smile Center for Kids in Sunland and Edgemere TX, we have several options to fix broken or decayed teeth. One of the most common restorations, even in pediatric dentistry, is a dental crown.
Dental crowns are sometimes called caps, because they fit over the part of the tooth like a cap over your head. The tooth has usually had some repair work done, and needs extra protection.
A dental crown restores the original size and shape to the tooth. They are usually made of ceramic, porcelain and metal, or some other strong material. They are custom-made for each patient and cemented into place.
Once it is placed, the crown covers the damaged or repaired tooth above the gum-line, and restore full functionality. They also restore its strength, and protect the part of the tooth underneath it.
