Dr. Baker Chambliss and Medplex Pediatric Dentistry were recently featured on the NuSmile website and social media pages regarding use of NuSmile ZR crowns. Esthetic crowns, like the NuSmile ZR crown, may be used in children 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; or 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.
According to Dr. Chambliss, who has been using the NuSmile ZR aesthetic crown for the past 11 years at Medplex Pediatric Dentistry, it is a great option because it contains no metal substructure. It beautifully restores teeth and parents are exceptionally pleased with the outcome, case after case. Their natural appearance is impressive, they never require ongoing repairs and are highly durable.
NuSmile ZR crowns were scientifically developed using CT digital scans of natural primary teeth. They are designed to be the ideal thickness needed for optimal strength, gum health. Their narrow 1st primary molars provide easier placement in crowded cases, when space loss has occurred and when placing adjacent crowns.
Dr. Chambliss is one of the only pediatric dentists providing NuSmile ZR aesthetic crowns to patients in the Birmingham, Pelham, Hoover, Alabaster, and Helena.
