While your child’s primary teeth are temporary, they still play an important role in your child’s smile and should receive proper care. Children are often at increased risk of developing tooth decay, and if your child’s tooth decay is severe, our pediatric dentist may need to recommend a baby tooth dental crown instead of a filling to restore their teeth and oral health. When you and your child visit our office for a dental crown, our pediatric dentist will explain your options to you and help you find the right treatment to address your child's specific oral health needs. We may offer zirconia crowns to children with extensive tooth decay when restoring their teeth and smile.
