At Little Penguin Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that having a positive self-image can be an essential aspect of oral health. Children who are healthy and confident in their smiles often make friends easier, perform better in school and have higher self-esteem. We offer a variety of white crowns, including zirconia, hybrid resin, and composite crowns. Depending on the location of the tooth, size of the cavity, and cooperation of the child, these options can be an excellent alternative over the traditional stainless steel crowns.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Cavities are one of the most common oral health problems that impact children, as they’re still learning how to properly brush and floss their pearly whites. Fortunately, when decay strikes, we can repair it with natural-looking tooth-colored fillings. Using composite resin, which is a custom-shaded, biocompatible material, we can fill in the eroded portion of a tooth and seal it off from bacteria and other threats. This is a highly effective intervention for cavities, preventing them from growing into infections.

Pulp and Nerve Treatment

When a tooth has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp and nerve tissue, causing pain, infection, and abscess. It is best to prevent this scenario by treating the inflamed nerve with either a pulpotomy or pulpectomy, also known as a “baby root canal”. During treatment, Dr. Peng will remove the inflamed tissue and place a bioactive and biocompatible medicament in the interior of the tooth. Finally the tooth is covered by a crown to seal the tooth and allow for natural healing.
