Dental crowns are a restorative treatment that can repair and protect a damaged tooth. When a child has a tooth that is weakened due to trauma, decay or dental treatments, a dental crown can provide a durable covering to prevent further damage. Our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville offers beautiful, lasting dental crowns to protect the smiles of our young patients.

Dental Crowns for Children

When is a dental crown needed for a child? Whenever a permanent tooth is damaged, it is important to protect it from possible loss or extraction. Dental crowns may be used for dental restoration on permanent teeth that need a root canal or major dental repair to strengthen and protect the tooth structure. Crowns are also used for repairs to permanent teeth that are cracked or broken.

Even primary teeth can benefit from a dental crown. If the tooth is weak or damaged, a dental crown can protect it until the permanent tooth arrives. If the tooth is extracted, a space maintainer may be needed to reserve the space and prevent shifting of the surrounding teeth. A dental crown can offer an alternative, protecting the natural primary tooth from early loss.

White & Silver Crowns

Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville offers a variety of materials for dental crowns that come in different colors. While white crowns are preferred for aesthetics, metal or silver crowns can be more durable and affordable. Dr. Chong and our pediatric dental team can discuss the different options available for children’s crowns and which are the best for durability, appearance and cost in your circumstance.

Crowns can protect your child’s natural teeth and smile. If your child needs a tooth restoration, come see us at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville. We offer advanced options in restorative dental treatments for kids, including white and silver crowns for children.

Our Patients Reviews

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Dental Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
