Dr. Baker Chambliss is a proud provider of NuSmile Zirconia Restorative Crowns. You may be asking yourself why a child would need a crown on a baby tooth, but the top reasons may surprise you.
Pediatric restorative crowns are used to:
- Save a tooth that has been so damaged by decay that it can’t support a filling.
- Protect the teeth of a child at high risk for tooth decay, especially when a child has difficulty keeping up with daily oral hygiene.
- Decrease the frequency of general anesthesia for children unable because of age, behavior, or medical history to fully cooperate with the requirements of proper dental care.
Until recently, silver colored crowns were the best option available. Silver options, especially on prominent teeth are not the most aesthetically pleasing option and can also chip and are not as durable or resilient as the NuSmile crown. Plus, the NuSmile crown will not break down or get discolored like previous options, such as stainless steel and resin based crowns.
If you or a friend has a child in need of a pediatric restorative crown, don’t settle for silver. NuSmile crowns are a great option for a beautiful restoration.
