Stainless Steel Pediatric Crowns in Plano
Helping Your Child Achieve a Healthier Smile
If your child has broken or cracked teeth, or even teeth that have been discolored due to trauma, you may want to consider a dental crown as a solution. Dental crowns are a cap which is shaped to the tooth and placed over it to improve its appearance or for extra protection. At Soaring Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we make dental crowns for children made of stainless steel so that they are durable and can strengthen the baby teeth until they fall out and the adult teeth grow in.

Benefits of Placing Dental Crowns
If your child's back teeth (molars) have become decayed, they are primary candidates for stainless steel crowns. This is a safe and proven treatment method which can be used to save teeth from decay, both for baby teeth and adult teeth. Stainless steel is incredibly durable and long-lasting, even more so than fillings in some cases.
Placing a crown can offer a few benefits, including:
- Improved talking and chewing ability
- Healthier, improved smile
- Protection from cracking and decay
How Are Stainless Steel Crowns Placed?
Our Plano board-certified pediatric dentist takes great care to ensure your child is comfortable. The procedure to place a crown is relatively painless.
First, we ensure that the problem area is numbed with anesthetic so that your child will not be in pain. After the area has been properly numbed, we may file down the tooth so that the crown can fit. In order to construct the crown to be the right size and shape, we take an impression of the tooth. Then the impressions are sent to a lab where the crown is made. Once the crown comes back expertly constructed just for your mouth, we can apply it to the tooth.
