If your child has a damaged or decayed tooth in Saginaw, our team is here to help. Dr. Christina and Dr. Elias have decades of combined experience in pediatric restorative dentistry, and can treat damaged and decayed teeth with high quality and long lasting crowns. We offer the newest and most durable crowns. We always keep your child's smile our priority. As a result, our team will never use all stainless steel crowns in the front.
Dental crowns are commonly used to to restore teeth with large cavities that cannot be repaired with a dental filling.
Since crowns can cover up and protect the entire tooth structure, they are ideal for treating cracked and broken teeth caused by dental injuries. With our crowns, your child's smile will be restored and your child can get back to their normal routine.
After a nerve treatment with a pulpotomy or a pulpectomy, a crown is the best way for Dr. Elias or Dr. Christina to cover up and protect the tooth from any future damage.
When it comes to dental crowns at Saginaw Kids Dentistry, you’ve got lots of options. Dr. Elias and Dr. Christina will work with you to choose the right treatment for your little one.
White zirconia crowns are made of a mineral that’s nearly identical to tooth enamel in appearance and translucence. This means that white zirconia crowns are ideal for treating front teeth, since they look and feel just like a real tooth.
Stainless steel crowns are often used to treat primary (baby) teeth. They are really affordable and the placement process is very simple. They are also very durable, and will last until the baby tooth falls out on its own and is replaced by a healthy adult tooth.
White stainless steel crowns are still made of steel, but they have a white “veneer” of material on the front of the tooth. This makes the tooth look more natural, so white stainless steel crowns are a better choice for front teeth that are highly visible.
Zirconia crowns are tooth colored, and are made to look and feel just like natural teeth. They are also very durable. We offer these crowns for front and back baby teeth.
First, your child will come in for an appointment to have their tooth prepared. Dr. Christina or Dr. Elias will clean their mouth, numb the area, and trim the tooth. Then, they’ll take molds of the teeth and send them to a dental lab where the crown will be made.
You’ll come to Saginaw Kids Dentistry in a few weeks, once your child’s crown is finished and has arrived at our office. Then, the crown will be checked and permanently bonded into place by Dr. Christina or Dr. Elias.
Dr. Christina and Dr. Elias are here to help your child get relief from pain and discomfort, and to prevent future complications.
Stainless steel crowns are a great option for treating damaged baby teeth. Here are a few benefits of choosing a pre-fitted steel crown.
Unlike custom white crowns and even fillings, no drilling is usually required to prepare your child’s tooth, simplifying their treatment.
Your child can get a crown in just one day. White crowns usually take at least 2 appointments.
Stainless steel crowns provide long-term protection and will keep your child’s baby tooth intact until it falls out naturally.
Dr. Elias and Dr. Christina are also experts in placing stainless steel crowns. These crowns are very durable and strong, which makes them perfect for treating baby teeth and protecting them until they fall out naturally as your child grows. These crowns are only used for back teeth.
First, your child’s mouth will be cleaned and numbed for their comfort. We also offer sedation dentistry, which helps keep your little one feeling safe and comfortable.
Next, Dr. Elias or Dr. Christina will clean and trim the tooth, as necessary, to remove damaged enamel and material. This helps with the fit, stability, and durability of your child’s crown.
We can restore baby teeth right away with our pre-fitted zirconia, stainless steel, and white stainless steel crowns. Dr. Elias or Dr. Christina will choose a crown that fits onto your child’s tooth perfectly, then bond it into place with dental cement. Then, you and your child will be sent home.
