Zirconia Crowns

Shine Pediatric Dental Co. helps parents preserve their children's oral health while ensuring a beautiful smile that takes them into adulthood. As a pediatric dental specialist, Dr. Sarah offers the highest quality care to families in Round Rock, Pflugerville, Austin, and Hutto. One of the advanced dental services she provides is zirconia crowns, which are protective covers that reinforce teeth with significant structural damage.

Why Does My Child Need a Crown?

A child's dental health sets the foundation for their overall well-being. Untreated decay or large fractures in teeth can lead to premature tooth loss, creating a chain reaction that alters your child's bite alignment and skeletal growth. By preserving damaged teeth and limiting tooth loss, Dr. Sarah Severson can facilitate healthier growth patterns and natural biting/chewing function even when teeth are severely decayed. Our pediatric dental crown treatment is usually recommended in situations where a filling is no longer appropriate or after pulp therapy.

Understanding Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns are a modern advancement in pediatric dentistry, offering a perfect blend of durability, aesthetics, and safety. Instead of temporary metal crowns, these "caps" are crafted from zirconia, a ceramic material known for its exceptional strength and biocompatibility. Zirconia crowns are metal-free, making them an ideal choice for children with allergies or sensitivities to traditional metal-based dental restorations or when repairing teeth in front of their smile.

Benefits of Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns are exceptionally resilient and can withstand the biting and chewing forces of growing children. Their long-lasting nature ensures that your child's smile remains vibrant even under daily wear and tear. Plus, zirconia crowns offer a lifelike appearance due to their translucent nature, mimicking the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Dr. Sarah's commitment to aesthetics ensures that your child's zirconia crown seamlessly blends with their existing teeth, boosting their self-confidence.

The Treatment Process

Dr. Sarah strives to provide a comfortable and stress-free experience for both children and parents alike. Your child's crown treatment is typically completed in one appointment by numbing the tooth, but sedation options are also available to ensure ultimate comfort. After the damaged portions of the tooth are removed, the remaining structures are prepped and shaped for the crown to fit over them.

Your child's crown is carefully cemented into place and can last for several years when cared for properly. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing around each tooth and crown daily, and planning regular checkups with our pediatric dentist in Round Rock.
