Stainless Steel Crowns A Soaring Smile Goes a Long Way!

Pediatric Dental Crowns in Plano, TX

Ensure Your Child's Bright Smile with Quality, Stainless Steel Crowns

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. These crowns also allow the tooth to function properly until the permanent tooth emerges.

Discover Plano's Choice for Stainless Steel Pediatric Crowns - Call Us!

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.

Advantages of Pediatric Dental Crowns in Oral Health

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.

Key benefits of choosing a stainless steel pediatric crown:

  • Enhanced speech and eating functions
  • Boosted confidence with a healthier smile
  • Robust protection against further dental issues

Plano Pediatric Crowns: A Step-by-Step Placement Guide

Our 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.

Child-Friendly Stainless Steel Crowns: Safety and Reliability

Yes, stainless steel crowns are safe for children and are a common treatment option for kids with damaged or decayed primary (baby) teeth. Reasons to trust stainless steel crowns for your child:

  1. Longevity: Stainless steel crowns are highly durable and can last for many years, even with the wear and tear of everyday use. They can withstand the forces of chewing and biting, making them ideal for children who may not always take the best care of their teeth.

  2. Comprehensive Protection: Stainless steel crowns provide a protective barrier for baby teeth that have been damaged or weakened by decay. They can help prevent further decay and damage, as well as protect the tooth from future cavities.

  3. Simple Procedure: The procedure for placing stainless steel crowns is relatively simple and can be completed in a single dental visit. This means less time in the dental chair for your child and less stress for both of you.

  4. Affordability: Stainless steel crowns are typically less expensive than other restorative options such as composite fillings or porcelain crowns. They are also covered by many dental insurance plans.

  5. Biocompatibility: Stainless steel crowns are made from a biocompatible material that is safe for use in the mouth. They do not contain any harmful chemicals or materials that could cause an allergic reaction or other adverse effects.
