What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are small, cap-like restorations that our dental laboratory custom-crafts to fit snuggly atop your child’s damaged or treated tooth. Dr. Murad uses dental materials known for their aesthetic appeal, like ceramic, as well as their durability, like silver, so you can choose the option that you feel best fits your child’s needs.

Our team may recommend a customized restoration like a dental crown in the following situations:

  • To help strengthen a tooth that has already been treated, like after a filling has been placed.
  • When severe dental trauma, like a crack within a tooth, requires a tooth to need extra protection from harmful oral bacteria.
  • After a tooth has receive pulp therapy.

The Process of Getting a Dental Crown

Our team does our best to make your child’s treatment as stress-free and fear-less as possible. Dr. Murad will begin by removing a small portion of enamel from the tooth to help the crown fit securely over the top of it. This will also ensure that their bite remains even, and the restoration feels comfortable within their mouth. We’ll then capture an impression of the prepared tooth to send off to our dental laboratory. There, they’ll craft the permanent crown from silver or ceramic. In the meantime, we’ll place a temporary crown atop your child’s tooth.

Once your child’s permanent crown arrives, we’ll have you both come back in to remove the temporary restoration and cement it in place. This is quick and pain-less! Finally, Dr. Murad will remove any residue from the tooth, double-check your child’s bite, and make sure it feels comfortable. It’s likely that they may experience some discomfort for the following 24 hours, but it should go away soon after that.
