Tooth Crowns

Salt Lake City area childrens dentist that puts in dental crowns
While restoring your child’s tooth using a white composite filling is usually the best option, there are times when a tooth may be too badly damaged to be restored using a filling. In these circumstances a crown may need to be used. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to stop decay from spreading and prevents any further damage to the tooth.

Crowns may be made from a variety of materials that will best meet your child’s needs. We typically recommend using a less noticeable tooth colored porcelain crown when repairing a front tooth and a stainless steel crown when repairing a molar.
