Some parents ask why tooth crowns are necessary in repairing decayed primary teeth. Here are a few reasons:
- The enamel of baby teeth is so thin that decay can spread quickly to the rest of your child’s smile. A single tooth cap can help to halt the advances of decay, protecting teeth from further damage.
- Dental crowns can help restore the shape, the size and the function of your child’s tooth. They will be able to chew, speak and use their full smile easily, and without pain.
- Tooth crowns can also help promote healthy jawbone and muscle development.
