Dental Crowns Q & A

by Sara Bukhari, DDS

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown acts as a cap that goes over a damaged tooth to restore your child’s smile. Dr. Bukhari securely cements the crown onto a tooth that’s broken, weak, or cracked to help with functionality and appearance.

Crowns are custom-created to ensure they fit comfortably and properly.

Why would my child need a dental crown?

Your child might need a dental crown to:

  • Restore and protect a chipped, broken, or damaged tooth
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Improve the aesthetics of a badly shaped or discolored tooth

Your child might also need a crown if they have a large filling and not enough tooth to hold the filling securely and properly in place.

How is a dental crown placed?

To place a dental crown, Dr. Bukhari has to remove a layer of the outer surface of your child’s tooth to prepare it to fit the shape of the crown. Dr. Bukhari then cements the crown in place until it covers the entire visible portion of the tooth.

How should my child take care of a dental crown?

Dr. Bukhari gives you and your child detailed instructions on how to best take care of dental crowns so they last as long as possible. Just like normal teeth, your child should be sure to keep the crowns clean.

Stay up-to-date with your child’s professional dental cleanings, preventive care, and at-home self-care and cleanings.

Dental crowns can’t decay, but the edge where the crown joins the teeth can. It’s especially important your child maintains good dental hygiene to prevent this edge from decaying. Dr. Bukhari recommends brushing twice a day. It’s also important you or your child spend enough time and energy reaching the back areas of your crowns and teeth.
