Pediatric Crowns

pediatric-crownsA crown is sometimes termed a “cap” or” “jacket”. A crown will restore a broken, heavily filled or cracked tooth to its original size, shape and tooth color.

A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more apt to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improve the appearance of your teeth.

With the advances in technology we now have the ability to build these crowns with no metal present at all.
