Frequently Asked Questions

These crowns are options for use in restoring primary teeth which are chipped, damaged, or broken, are not developing properly, or with areas of decay too large to fill without the risk of breaking a tooth. Extensively decayed primary teeth can often cause great concern for patients and parents, especially when front teeth are affected.

Your child might be given anaesthesia for this procedure. Your child's tooth will first be prepared to receive the Zirconia crown.

The zirconia crown kits contain various pre-made crowns in different sizes. After preparing a tooth to receive a crown, your dentist will select the appropriate size crown, which is then passively placed on the tooth and cemented in place. Zirconia crowns are typically cemented in place with a resin.

Your child's gums will be sensitive for several days after the placement of White Zirconia Dental Crown. If needed we will prescribe a mild pain killer for your child and instruct you on how to administer it.

The gums may bleed when eating or brushing teeth for several days after treatment. Continue brushing even if the gums are bleeding or sore. This ensures food does not get trapped and cause an infection in the gums.

Foods to Avoid after a White Zirconia Dental Crown

As the White Zirconia Dental Crowns are glued into place with a special cement, we recommend several simple dietary restrictions. Avoiding these foods will give the cement the best chance to hold the crown in place.

Please avoid sticky or chewy foods, such as :

  •  Chewing Gum
  •  Raisins
  •  Fruit snacks
  •  Sticky candies
  •  Chikki
