With silver :/ its all my insurance will cover, I think its super tacky my question is can the cap be removed and capped later with something that doesn't look like a ghetto rapper? Lol.

Could ask dentist if you can pay the difference.

Dunno but silver is stronger and better suited for children.

Can you not afford to pay the difference now? It will probably be less expensive that way than replacing it entirely later

Yeah that is what he said. Do you know when that tooth will fall out?

No I don't. It sucks they are gonna try to fill it first but said that she will most likely need the cap. :/

The replacement will probably cost you more, not to mention the time and putting your child through it.

Tell her to learn some rhymes & beats in the meantime. Jk

No sorry. Ds has his capped because his delay causes him to grind severely and cavities were forming because of the weaking. We have to get them replaced yearly bc he grinds through the silver. I think (and i'm not sure that they loose their canines fairly early like 7 or so)

 If it is a baby tooth I wouldn't even stress it.  My son lost his canines between 8 and 9 I believe.
