Pediatric Crowns

White or silver “fillings” are not a good choice for restoring big cavities because they will have a much lower chance of success. In these cases, there is not enough sound tooth structure left to hold on to a white or silver “filling”.

Stainless steel crowns are very durable and can last until your child loses his or her baby tooth. For this reason, stainless steel crowns are considered the gold standard for restoring large cavities on baby teeth.

White crowns are great options for restoring large cavities on front teeth because they provide a more natural look for your child’s smile. However, these crowns are more technique sensitive and may require more time to complete.

As your child naturally loses their baby teeth, the crown will come out with it.
