See the Beauty and Benefits of Porcelain Crowns for Kids

Many children don’t feel good about their smile because it’s damaged or discolored. Luckily, you can improve your child’s smile and their overall confidence by getting them porcelain crowns. This is a common dental treatment that offers outstanding cosmetic and restorative results. Pediatric dentists often recommend porcelain crowns for children because they’re stronger than other dental treatments and can last for years with proper care. A porcelain crown can provide many dental benefits, including:

  • Improving the smile’s overall appearance
  • Correcting chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Filling gaps in teeth
  • Re-shaping crooked teeth
  • Covering badly decayed or damaged teeth
  • Masking stained or discolored teeth

Take a Better Look at the Porcelain Crown Procedure

When considering porcelain crowns for children, it’s important to know that they’re only used on a child’s permanent teeth. They are made of a tooth-colored porcelain and are custom-created in a dental lab to fit your child’s smile. The procedure involves these steps:

  1. At the first dental visit, the pediatric dentist will take impressions of your child’s teeth.
  2. At this time, some of the natural tooth structure will need to be removed to allow the porcelain crown to fit. But a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth until the final crown is created.
  3. A few weeks later, your child will return to the dental office and their custom-made porcelain crowns will be placed on their teeth.
  4. Your child may require follow-up dental visits to check on their satisfaction and comfort.

Cover all the Considerations of Porcelain Crowns for Children

Porcelain crowns can correct many cosmetic and restorative dental problems. They are also stain-resistant, durable, and can last for many years. Yet it’s important to be aware that porcelain crowns affect more of the tooth’s natural structure than other treatment options, as well as costing a bit more. But the excellent results and durability they offer make them well worth it to many. Carefully weigh these factors and talk to your pediatric dentist to see if porcelain crowns are the perfect fit for your child’s smile.
