Baby Teeth Crowns

Robinson DDS Pediatric and Endodontic Dentistry can promote oral health, retain a good bite and promote the correct bite as permanent teeth begin to erupt, by protecting and restoring your child’s primary teeth.

Lindsey A. Robinson, DDS understands that if your child has a badly decayed primary tooth, a stainless steel dental crown, which serves as a cover for the damaged tooth below, may be the best solution.
How is the dental crown placed?
Placing the dental crown is a simple process. Lindsey A. Robinson, DDS will begin with removing the decayed portion of the tooth. Because we know that this is not a long-term restoration, a prefabricated stainless steel crown is fitted over the tooth, encasing it and protecting it until the permanent tooth is ready to come out to replace it. Your child will have better long term oral health from choosing to protect this baby tooth.
