For primary (baby) teeth that are severely broken down due to dental decay, our doctors are specially trained in the use of zirconia crowns. Zirconia crowns are the most esthetically pleasing of all crowns in pediatric dentistry. Zirconia crowns are an all-ceramic (all white) crown that can be placed on primary teeth in the front or back of the mouth.
Growing Smiles in Floral Vale is unique in that we offer zirconia crowns on back teeth, so when your child smiles, you may have a difficult time pointing out which tooth is the crown!
The procedure is more technique sensitive than silver or coated crowns, thus these beautiful ceramics cannot be used successfully on every tooth requiring a crown. Our doctors will be happy to discuss with you to decide if your child is a good candidate for this type of crown.
