… or also child’s crown
If a hole in your tooth is already large and deep or a root treatment has to be carried out that will leave a larger hole, a dental filling is no longer sufficient to treat it. A dental crown is then used. This means the dental defect is too large to be closed properly and protected by a filling.
With specially prefabicrated crowns, which are available either silver-coloured or as a tooth-coloured ceramic crown, we can save the chewing function of the tooth and its role as a spacer.
As children’s crowns are prefabricated and not individually produced in the dental laboratory, their major advantage is that we do not have to take a dental impression and can therefore repair the tooth at one dental appointment. Children’s crowns are available in many different sizes. We are therefore able to adapt them directly to fit your child’s tooth.
