Covering Damaged Teeth
A child with a severely decayed or damaged tooth requires a dental crown to provide a sturdy biting surface. Crowns located close to the front of the mouth are made with color matching composite materials to give a child a beautiful smile. A crown in the back of the mouth is frequently created from metallic substances instead to last longer while a child chews harder foods. Old-fashioned crowns are made of substances such as mercury that leach into the body over many years. Many people believe that a crown made from the same materials designed for an adultâ€™s dental crown is dangerous for children.
Strong Ceramic Material
This has led to the EZ-Pedo Crown created by Dr. John P. Hansen and Dr. Jeffery P. Fisher from zirconia crystals. Zirconia is a strong ceramic substance that remains white during the process of making a customized crown. After the tooth is made to fit perfectly in a childâ€™s mouth, it is dyed to match other teeth located nearby. The specialized process of manufacturing an EZ-Pedo Crown leads to an attractive but long lasting dental restoration that helps to maintain a childâ€™s self-esteem and oral health. Not only are these custom-made crowns durable, the restorations are also affordable.
Easy Color Matching
The Company that created EZ-Pedo Crowns makes it simple for dentists to order and apply the restorations to childrenâ€™s damaged teeth by providing informative online videos explaining the process. Dental insurance companies are willing to reimburse for these affordable crowns as a child grows, including the occasional replacement. Dentists find it easy to match the color of the zirconia to a childâ€™s other teeth, making dental visits quicker. After five years of clinical trials, the EZ-Pedo Crown is considered a highly desirable restoration dental appliance for children.
