Today, more than ever, there is a bigger demand on the practitioner to have esthetic alternatives to treating little ones. Stainless steel crown restorations have been the gold standard in Pediatric dentistry ever since their invention. However, more and more parents are demanding “white” tooth restorations for their child’s smile! Restoring severely decayed primary teeth still pose so many challenges for the clinician; from choosing the right treatment option to dealing with treatment failures when they happen. This lecture, is going to answer the million-dollar question of how to offer white crowns to children in the dental practice drama free and tear-free?

Pediatric Dentistry is challenging in every possible way to us as clinicians. Starting from choosing the proper treatment plan specific for the child to executing it and the patient leaving the practice happy with a smile- this journey is prone to a lot of surprises. Stainless steel crowns are not the only golden standard restorations to extensively decayed primary teeth. After the introduction of prefabricated zirconia white crowns for baby teeth, we as dentists have one more tool in our toolbox.

This lecture aims to take the dentist through the journey of taking great care of a child patient starting from proper case selection for the use of zirconia crowns in primary teeth whether anterior or posterior, indications vs contraindications to their use, to behaviour management, pain management, nitrous oxide sedation and discussion of common causes for failure of zirconia crowns. Dentists can achieve healthy and happy outcomes for their pediatric patients, giving both them and their parents not only what they desire, but also what they need- a healthy long-lasting beautiful pearly white smile!
