What Are Dental Crowns?

If your child has a serious cavity or a damaged or broken tooth due to an oral injury, a dental crown is the best way to protect their remaining tooth structure, get relief from pain & discomfort, and avoid further complications. At Big Picture Pediatric Dentistry, we offer both tooth-colored and stainless steel crowns in Houston for kids. To learn more, schedule a consultation today! 

The Basics of Dental Crowns


Stainless steel crowns are very durable and contain only safe materials. Stainless steel crowns are one of the most affordable dental crown options, which makes them a good choice for restoring baby teeth that will naturally fall out. Esthetic crowns are tooth-colored and blend in seamlessly to your child's smile. An esthetic crown is usually recommended for the front (anterior) teeth.

At Big Picture Pediatric Dentistry, we will precisely choose a dental crown for your child based on size and shape to ensure it fits comfortably in their mouth. If you have chosen to proceed with a tooth-colored crown, we will match the crown material to the natural color of your child's tooth. After placement, their dental crown will ensure the capped tooth is protected from further damage and decay.

What Are Dental Crowns used to Treat?

Crowns are usually used to treat cavities that are too deep for a filling. They are also commonly used to restore and repair teeth that have been damaged by an oral injury and to cover up teeth that are treated with root canals. More rarely, crowns can be used for cosmetic purposes, but this is not common in pediatric dentistry. 

Understanding Crown Placement Process

First, Dr. Brock will numb your child’s mouth. Dental sedation can also be administered, if necessary. Then, the treatment will begin by gently drilling away damaged and decayed enamel from your child’s tooth. The tooth will be shaped into a stable platform, to which your child’s crown can be attached.

Then, Dr. Brock will choose the perfect crown to fit over your child's existing tooth structure. Your child’s crown will be checked for fit before it is cemented in place to ensure it is comfortable. Dr. Brock will bond the crown to your child’s tooth permanently, completing the procedure. The entire process usually takes less than two hours. If the crown is being placed over a baby tooth, it will fall out naturally in time, just like a normal tooth.
