PRIMARY PREFABRICATED ZIRCONIA CROWN
unencumbered. In order to ensure fit and
occlusion and to prevent contamination of
the zirconia crown to be cemented, a Try-In
crown (NuSmile) was used (figure 3).
Refinements to the preparation to facilitate
fit and occlusion were done at this point.
Cementation was then achieved as follows:
Once satisfied with fit and occlusion, the prepared tooth was washed and dried but not desiccated. The NuSmile zirconia crown to be cemented was filled with cement (BioCem;
NuSmile). Working time was approximately 60
seconds. The crown was set into the correct
position. BioCem was photo cured with a tack
cure of 10 seconds to the facial and 10 seconds
to the palatal aspect. The cement was then
cleaned interproximally using floss. Once all
cement was removed, a final photo cure of 10
seconds to the facial and palatal was applied.
One-month postoperative occlusal view and
occlusion are pictured in Figures 4a and 4b.
The ability to understand and provide primary prefabricated zirconia crowns to your
patients is an immense benefit to the children
in your practice as well as their parents. It is a
simple and satisfying procedure that will help
to grow and maintain your successful family
