Aesthetic Rehabilitation in Maxillary Anterior Tooth with Early Childhood Caries using ZIRKIZ® Crown: Long- Term Follow-up


During the last decade, zirconium dioxide (zirconia, ZrO2) ceramics, which have superior to mechanical properties and aesthetic advantages, can be used as alternative materials to metal-ceramic systems. The aim of this study was to report zirconia restoration for primary anterior teeth. Patient who took part in had verbal information and was written a consent form. They took radiographic and intraoral assessment for noting a pre-operative status. Tooth was prepared and laboratory procedure had done. Complete zirconia crown was adapt with self-etching adhesive cement. This clinical trial of very young patients provides successful results of aesthetic rehabilitative treatment of both a tooth with early childhood caries and primary anterior teeth. The findings after 6‑, 12‑, and 18‑month follow‑up could be useful for improving clinical approaches in subsequent cases. In the result, patient and their care giver were satisfied with zirconia crown as anterior teeth restoration.
