Yes, you may know that it’s exciting that your children have access to white zirconia crowns for their smiles, should they need them! However, you may not be able to put your finger on the reasons why. Of course, if you are not highly informed regarding restorations like crowns (unless you’re a dentist, this is not exactly common knowledge), then you will want to gather up the initial details that will provide you with a solid education! As a result, if your little one (or teen) ever requires a crown, you can rest easy. Zirconia is here to save the day!
What’s Zirconia Look Like?
Zirconia crowns provide an all-ceramic option for restoring damaged teeth. The material is translucent and customizable, which means we can thoroughly craft the shape and color of your child’s crown into a restoration that blends into your child’s grin. Similar to the appearance of everyone’s natural teeth, the translucency mimics natural dental tissue. So, you can rest assured that if your child’s tooth needs serious help, the finished result will be a healthy tooth that looks completely natural.
What Can I Expect?
Fortunately, we can place white zirconia crowns on both front teeth and back teeth. If you’re thinking that beautiful, natural-looking restorations can’t possibly withstand the pressure that back teeth have to endure from chewing, we understand where you’re coming from! You may be more familiar with porcelain crowns, which are appropriate for front teeth but aren’t strong enough for those in the back. Fortunately, zirconia offers a very strong, durable, and long-lasting solution. Your child’s smile will be functional, beautiful, and resilient after placement!
