Pediatric Dentist Oakland

Pediatric dental crowns are made for primary or baby teeth. They’re usually made of stainless steel as the crown will only be needed until the baby tooth falls out naturally. Pediatric crowns protect and restore baby teeth that are too damaged or decayed to treat with a filling. By saving the decayed baby tooth, we can maintain the pathway for the adult tooth and create a healthier smile for your child.

We offer three types of crowns!
– Stainless Steel Crowns (Posterior only)
– Zirconia White Crowns (Anterior and Posterior)
– Hall Crowns (Stainless Steel Crowns with no anesthetic or drilling, Posterior only)

Stainless steel crowns are great for restoring damaged or decayed baby teeth. These crowns are made of a durable and biocompatible material, making them an ideal choice for children’s primary teeth. The stainless steel material is strong enough to withstand the biting and chewing pressure of everyday use and will last until the baby tooth naturally falls out. By restoring the damaged tooth with a stainless steel crown, we can maintain the proper pathway for the adult tooth to come in, promoting a healthy and beautiful smile for your child. Additionally, the crowns are cost-effective and can be placed quickly and easily, reducing the time your child needs to spend in the dental chair. Overall, stainless steel crowns provide a reliable and long-lasting solution for restoring damaged baby teeth.

Zirconia is a ceramic material that can be used as an alternative to stainless steel crowns. The biggest benefit of zirconia crowns is that they are “tooth colored” and look more natural than stainless steel crowns.

We are thrilled to offer Hall Crowns as an option for restoring damaged baby teeth. Hall Crowns are a type of stainless steel crown that are unique in that they require no anesthetic or drilling, making them a great choice for children who are anxious about dental procedures. The crowns are designed to fit snugly over the damaged tooth, providing a strong and durable layer of protection. With Hall Crowns, your child can avoid the discomfort and anxiety that can come with traditional crown placement. There is just a little pressure from the placement of the crown and the glue that squishes out. This makes HALL crowns an excellent option for children who are prone to dental anxiety or have a strong aversion to being numb and/or drilling. By preserving the damaged tooth and promoting a healthy smile, Hall Crowns offer a safe and effective solution for restoring your child’s tooth.
