Your Child's Smile Matters

White / Tooth-Colored Crowns

The Happy Campers team understands that having a positive self-image is an essential aspect of overall health. We want children to grow up proud of their smiles. Traditionally in pediatric dentistry, if a baby tooth needed a crown, a stainless-steel crown was the only option. Stainless steel crowns have an excellent record of success; however, their unnatural appearance is one drawback. We now have another crown option that can be as successful in treating a tooth and leaves the tooth appearing naturally. These crowns are known as Zirconia crowns or white crowns.

Why would my child need a dental crown?

Your child may need to have a dental crown placed if they have a significant amount of tooth decay that cannot be safely restored with a dental filling. If your child is in need of a dental crown, then a zirconia crown may be right for them. Zirconia crowns are one of the best dental restorative options available, as they seamlessly blend in with your child’s other teeth and still have the strength of a less attractive stainless-steel crown. At Happy Campers Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to offer this option to our patients!

This recent case shows the cosmetic difference in stainless steel crown, and the white zirconia crown next to it.
