White Crowns for Kids
So, you’ve been told your child needs a crown. A stainless-steel crown. You know, the only option in Pediatric Dentistry available. Not anymore! With advancing technologies in the Pediatric field (I won’t get into the logistics because let’s be honest.. it’s boring.), there is now the option of a full ceramic crown available for children. They are more biocompatible, durable and esthetically pleasing than the traditional stainless-steel crowns that have been available for as long as you can remember.
They contain absolutely no metal, making them a much better biocompatible option. The crowns are made from a high-grade monolithic zirconia ceramic with a material strength of 9 times stronger than natural teeth. Tests have proven over and over again that they are very durable. The biggest plus (for kiddos at least) is they are esthetically pleasing to the eye since they are a tooth colored material and look just like a tooth. There are two different shades available; light and extra light, which match most all primary teeth. No more bright shiny metal teeth. WooHoo! And yes, of course, we offer them at Origin Dental Wellness!
