Dental crowns are used to restore the functionality of damaged teeth. They can be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore a tooth that has excessive decay, and to provide strength and protection against breakage.
In situations where the dental filling is more than 30% it is best to support the tooth with a dental crown. A crown will cover your child’s tooth and restore it to its natural form, function, and strength. In addition to helping to protect teeth, dental crowns preserve the esthetics of your child’s smile. Dr. Buscemi will chose a dental crown to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, and your child will be able to have the utility he/she once had in their natural teeth.
