What is NuSmile?

NuSmile is a revolutionary new way to transform your child’s smile. NuSmile uses zirconia crowns to replace any metal crowns that your child currently has. These zirconia crowns are metal-free, durable and can last for years with proper care. Your child’s smile will look whiter and more natural thanks to NuSmile.

Why is NuSmile needed?

NuSmile may be needed if your child currently has stainless steel or metal crowns. The NuSmile zirconia smiles help to replace metal crowns in the mouth. They are completely white and are made to match your child’s existing smile. They are made with zirconia, which has been found to be one of the hardest dental materials available.

Who’s a good candidate for NuSmile?

To determine if NuSmile is right for your child, Dr. Mina will perform an exam and check your child’s teeth. Most children who currently have stainless steel crowns or who need a new crown can and will benefit from NuSmile. The purpose of NuSmile is to transform your child’s smile so that they can feel more confident in the way that they look. They are just as durable as metal crowns but are more aesthetically pleasing.

What happens during the NuSmile procedure?

We will begin by removing any stainless steel crowns that your child has currently. If a new crown is made, we will file down the tooth and take impressions. These impressions are used to make a new zirconia crown. The crown is then placed over the tooth and adhered permanently in place. The crown can last for many years with proper care and will naturally fall out with the baby tooth after it comes out.
