Crowns on front teeth what to expect for recovery

Well my three and a half year old is getting his front four teeth crowned this month. It will ether be the all white composite crowns (strip) or else the ez pedo white crowns. It's been a long road here because we have been monitoring these four teeth since he was nine months when they came in. Our previous dentist (who i do really like) kept watch on them and said when he was big enough to sedate we would fill them. He preferred not to sedate until age 3. Well now at age three they suddenly took a turn for the worst and need crowned he only did the crowns with a silver backing so after calling around we found a wonderful dentist in a nearby city who does all white.

Does anyone who's child has been through this have any input on the recovery time? It's on a Thursday morning... Will he be swollen? Bloody? How long will he be sore? When will he be up for normal activity? I am going to call back and ask more questions but we were so wrapped up in the insurance and sedation that I didn't ask about recovery. He will be getting iv sedation with a pediatric anestesiologist (I think it's versed). I'm not looking forward to it, but honestly his teeth have been scratchy with brown lines since they came in so they never looked great and I think the crowns wil probably look better. All in all I'm ready for this to be over with... I've been constantly anxious about his teeth for the last 2.5 years. Any advice is appreciated!

My children never had more than some tiredness, numbness, and mild discomfort the day of their fillings or crowns. My husband on the other hand has tooth pain for a couple days after he has dental work done. My first son had weak front baby teeth and we went through similar to yours, getting fillings as a toddler, going on to crowns about 3 or so. His adult teeth now seem healthy and strong though, and he's relatively relaxed about cleanings now despite it all. My second had some fairly shallow molar fillings at age 5, no numbing and no pain. They never underwent sedation though, only numbing and watching tv during procedures. I expect that would leave them extra groggy for a while.

Thank you! So was your little one back to normal the next day after the front crowns? My oldest had back crowns and was fine... But for some reason I feel like the front would be more sensitive?? I don't know! How did the front crowns look?

A crown is a kind of top that totally covers a genuine tooth. It's produced using either metal, or porcelain and metal, and is settled in your mouth. Crowns can be fitted where a tooth has broken, rotted or been harmed, or just to bring about a noticeable improvement.

Dental Same Day Crowns today are basically situated and overlook if done by a decent dental specialist.

Just wanted to update in case someone is researching later and xomes across it.

We has the iv sedation today and it went really well. My husband and I were able to stay with him until he went to sleep. The anestesiologist was in the room within the whole time. They had to do the ez pedo crowns instead of te strip. They are all white. They look really good... Except his smile does look a little different to me. But I don't think a stranger would have any idea. He couldn't eat six hours before or drink three hours before which was hard. They said it might take half an hour to wake up after but he was up in five minutes. And they said he would sleep after. Which he hasn't lol. But he woke up fine. No aggression or anything. I had them deal all of his molars while they were in there. So the procedures themselves went well... Besides the price tag! Yikes. The annestesiologist was $1400 alone. But I'm glad we went this route.

If you think your dentist is a good one then you don’t have to be worried. After the crowns the numbness might be there for a day or two, and then it will be fine. I don’t see much complication over that. My kido had crown for back tooth last year from a well known child dental service in Burlington and he was all active and running around on the second day.

I agree. Good dentistary is the best way not to cure all the dental pains but the after treatment pains too. You will have to be worry a little about the aftertreatment pain and some numbness.
