At Sugarbug Dental, our skilled team offers pediatric dental care using advanced technology so your child can have a positive, comfortable experience. They can relax with televisions, toys and books while they wait to be seen, and as a parent, you can always be by your child’s side during their dental treatment.

We offer pediatric dental crowns for baby teeth with severe tooth decay to avoid losing teeth prematurely. Premature tooth loss can interfere with proper oral development while waiting for the adult teeth to come in. Baby teeth, even though they will eventually fall out, serve a vital role in the interim. They are placeholders for the adult teeth to come.

With severe tooth decay, dental fillings aren’t always enough, so a dental crown may be recommended instead. For large cavities or after a root canal procedure (a pulpotomy), the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends restoring the tooth with a dental crown. Sugarbug Dental offers two kinds of dental crowns.

-Porcelain Crowns

Our dentists offer porcelain crowns that can be used on either the front or back teeth. This cosmetic option provides a pleasing esthetic solution for baby teeth as your child’s smile develops and grows.

-Stainless Steel Crowns

If your child has a decaying back tooth that could benefit from a crown, our team offers stainless steel crowns for those back teeth that aren’t visible when your child smiles. These crowns are quickly placed and durable while offering full protection for the damaged tooth. These are particularly useful in children who are younger than four years old and are ideal for those children who need general anesthesia.

If your child needs a dental crown treatment, our team is ready to help! If you would like to learn more or want to schedule an appointment with one of our caring dentists, please call (805) 985-2400 to speak to one of our friendly team members. We have been helping children receive quality dental care and orthodontics in Oxnard, California, as well as the surrounding areas of Port Hueneme, Camarillo, Ventura, Ojai, and Santa Barbara, CA.
