There are a variety of reasons children may require pediatric dental crowns. For instance, if primary teeth have been chipped or broken following a playground accident, pediatric dental crowns can help restore a naturally beautiful smile. In other cases, there could be significant tooth decay that can’t be filled without risk to the tooth. In these cases, pediatric dental crowns may be required to help recover the primary teeth. In recent history, when children had too much tooth decay, dentists would recommend extraction. With modern innovations, you have a completely different set of options that allow you to keep your child’s smile intact.
Yes! Zirconia crowns are the most natural looking option available. Your child’s crown, especially if placed on a front tooth, will match the other front teeth for a beautiful smile.
