Crowns for Children
- If severe decay has damaged the tooth and it can no longer support a filling
- For children who are at high risk for tooth decay
In most cases with children, the dentist will recommend a stainless steel crown.
What can patients experience after a placement of a crown?
Once the crown has been placed and the anesthesia has worn off, patients can experience discomfort and sensitivity. If the tooth that has been crowned still has a nerve present, you may experience hot and cold sensitivity. Toothpaste for sensitive teeth may be recommended for temporary use. Pain when biting down may mean that the crown is situated too high on the tooth, and you should let your dentist know immediately so that the situation can be remedied.
Crowns made with full porcelain can chip. Small chips can be restored with a composite filling with no need of replacing the crown. Major chips may require replacement of the crown.
Temporary crowns are used until your permanent crown is placed. Temporary crowns are made in the dental office, whereas the permanent crown is made at a dental laboratory. The temporary crowns are made using acrylic material and are not intended for long term use.
