Nowadays, more than the parents, the children themselves are concerned about their teeth and want tooth coloured fillings! In order to appease this growing demand for “aesthetic solutions”, zirconia crowns were introduced to replace the available stainless steel crowns which gave a “metallic” look and feel.
As compared to stainless steel, zirconia crowns are harder and can be used to cap the front as well as the back teeth.
These crowns are available in pre-designated sizes. So the dentist has to do minimal cutting of the tooth to remove the cavities, select the size of the crown and fix it! All in one appointment.
These caps will last till the baby tooth falls off to make way for the healthy permanent tooth.
