Some primary teeth with extensive cavities may require a full coverage crown to remain functional until your child’s tooth naturally exfoliates. Our office is proud to offer an aesthetically-pleasing option for any tooth. Anterior and posterior zirconia crowns are made of a biocompatible ceramic material and best resemble a natural tooth.
Zirconia’s strength and durability are superior to some of the traditional materials used to create crowns. This makes them an excellent choice for withstanding forces from chewing and even bruxism (teeth grinding). Zirconia also has high biocompatibility, meaning it won’t cause negative reactions in kids with allergies or sensitivities to alloys from traditional restorations.
Anterior crowns are placed on the front teeth, so they’re primarily designed to match the rest of your child’s teeth. When creating these restorations, we create them with the perfect combination of aesthetics and long-lasting function.
Since posterior crowns are placed in the back of the mouth, durability is more of a priority. These restorations are less challenging to design than anterior crowns since they won’t be seen as easily. Since posterior crowns take on all the chewing force, we’ll make them especially durable.
