A variety of esthetic restorative materials are available in dentistry for restoring primary teeth. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Complete coronal restoration of primary teeth with esthetic satisfaction of the patient is a significant concern. Pediatric zirconia crowns are commercially available on the market for complete coronal restoration. This paper reviews the published data on zirconia crowns for primary teeth.
