What is a crown?
Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Crowns are sometimes also known as ‘caps’.
When is a crown needed?
When a baby tooth is extensively decayed and using other filling materials isn’t likely to be successful, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends restoring the tooth with a stainless steel crown especially if the tooth has received pulpal therapy. After removing the decay, your dentist will fit and cement a prefabricated crown made of stainless steel over the tooth.
What types of pediatric crown available?
Dentists today use five main types of pediatric crowns: stainless steel, composite strip, polycarbonate, resin-veneered, and zirconia ceramic. Each of these crown types has advantages and disadvantages that dictate its suitability for different applications. Some of the most important factors considered by dentists when choosing a crown type are durability, aesthetics, retentiveness, adaptability, placement time, allergenicity, and cost.

What is a strip crown ?
Anterior strip crowns are the restoration of choice for upper or lower front teeth that have multiple surface or large cavities. It is a clear plastic tooth form that is trimmed and filled with composite resin (tooth colored filling material) to provide full tooth coverage after cavity removal.
Ceramic crowns for children?
Ceramic crowns may contain porcelain layered within their substructure or on their outer surface. They are extremely strong, and typically cost more than many other crowns. They provide exceptional esthetics and durability.
