children’s dental care tips
(white on the front/ silver underneath)
The white veneer is very delicate and can be easily chipped and fractured off. Chewing on toys and hard candy can create fractures in the white veneer and should be avoided.
If the white veneer should come off, then the crown will appear all silver. In order to restore the white color, the tooth will have to be numbed and either a new veneer or a new crown can be placed.
Our goal is to have these crowns last until their baby teeth fall out. These tips should help meet this goal.
