What is a crown?
A crown is a shell-like covering cemented to a damaged tooth for protection. It can prevent a decayed tooth from prematurely falling out and leading to a host of oral health problems. Crowns are also frequently used to correct cosmetic flaws, including: discoloration, chips, cracks, and shape issues.
The providers at Bellevue Pediatric Dentistry may recommend a crown for a primary or baby tooth that has extensive decay, a large cavity, a fracture due to trauma, or when a primary tooth has not developed correctly.
Crowns are significantly more durable than fillings, and generally, last until the primary tooth naturally falls out. Though primary teeth are eventually replaced by permanent adult teeth, keeping them protected and intact is important for a variety of reasons. So so:
What is unique about the crowns used by Dr. Gerlach?
Committed to offering his young patients the most advanced and comfortable dental products and services available, Bellevue Pediatric Dentistry’s providers use Sprig’s EZCrowns. These are the first and best pediatric Zirconia crowns on the market. White zirconia dental crowns are a metal-free and aesthetically-preferred alternative to stainless steel crowns. White zirconia crowns are biocompatible and immensely durable. In fact, zirconia is the most durable material used in dentistry today. These crowns won’t chip, become discolored, or wear down over time. In addition, they are resistant to plaque accumulation and decay.
Unlike adult crowns, white EZCrowns require only one visit, and there is no need for those messy, uncomfortable impressions. White EZCrowns are pre-made so they can be fitted and placed on your child in a single appointment.
