Your child’s teeth can become weak or broken due to decay or injury, but a tooth can be strong again when you come to Dentistry for Children for a dental crown in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. William D. Steinhauer will create this restoration so it fits snugly and comfortably over your child’s tooth. Come see our dentist for pediatric dental crowns.

A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Our pediatric dentist offers durable crowns made from stainless steel so they can last as they restore the strength and structure of a tooth.

Your child’s smile may benefit from a crown if they have a tooth damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:

  • To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weakened
  • To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
  • To improve a misshapen tooth’s shape
  • To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
