Brief Summary:
The hypothesis to be tested is that NuSmile ZR esthetic primary molar crowns perform similarly to an established Stainless Steel primary molar crown (3M ESPE) for restoration of primary molar teeth.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dental Caries Device: ZR Crown Device: Stainless Steel Crown Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The aim of this study is to clinically evaluate the performance of a new NuSmile ZR esthetic primary molar crown, compared with 3M ESPE Primary Stainless Steel crowns (currently the most common full coverage crown for the restoration of primary molars when a crown is necessary)in the restoration of 50 paired, prepared primary first and second molar teeth in the deciduous dentition of child patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
ZR Crown & Stainless Steel Crown
Each subject will have a maximum of one ZR Crown and one Stainless Steel Crown cemented on primary molars that are treatment planned for a crown.
Device: ZR Crown
This is an esthetic primary molar crown.
Device: Stainless Steel Crown
This is a conventional stainless steel crown.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessments of the SSC and ZR Crown [ Time Frame: At Baseline ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match, marginal integrity.

  2. Assessments of the SSC and ZR Crown at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 month visit ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match and marginal integrity.

  3. Assessments of the SSC and ZR Crown at 12 months [ Time Frame: 12 month visit ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match and marginal integrity.

  4. Assessments of the SSC and ZR Crown at 18 months [ Time Frame: 18 month visit ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match and marginal integrity.

  5. Assessments of the SSC and ZR Crown at 24 months [ Time Frame: 24 month visit ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match and marginal integrity.

  6. Assessments of SSC and ZR Crown at 36 months [ Time Frame: 36 month visit ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match and marginal integrity.

  7. Assessments of SSC and ZR Crowns at 48 months [ Time Frame: 48 month visit ]
    Clinically evaluate both the stainless steel crown and ZR crown for wear, gingival health, crown performance, color match and marginal integrity.
