Application of aesthetic crowns in children patients

Desislava Dimitrova, Radosveta Andreeva, Mariana Dimova-Gabrovska


Fixed prosthetic treatment is considered a safe and successful method for restoration of damaged primary and permanent teeth.

Aim: The aim of the study is to investigate the application of aesthetic crowns in the daily practice of dentists in Bulgaria.

Materials and Methods: The source of information was a questionnaire specifically designed for the purpose of the survey. Seven hundred sixty-seven dentists from all over the country were the subject of the research. The results were statistically processed using the methods of variation, comparison and correlation analysis.

Results: Of the all respondents, only 10.70% (82 people) reported that they were using aesthetic crowns as a method of restoration of the teeth of children. A significant difference in the application of aesthetic crowns was the presence of the specialty, the type of dentition and the used material.

Conclusion: The advantage of using aesthetic crowns as a method of restoration is the improvement not only of functional efficiency, but also of the aesthetic appearance and the psycho-emotional state of the children.
