Introduction. Hypomineralization is a qualitative defect of the enamel, which can occur in the primary and permanent dentition. The weak and porous enamel can be broken by masticatory forces, causing pain and sensitivity. In severe cases the tooth should be restored with a crown that provides protection and full coverage. The zirconia crowns are an alternative material of recent appearance that can be used in the area of Pediatric Dentistry. Clinical case. Female patient of 3 years 7 months old who comes to the Pediatric Dentistry clinic of the Justo Sierra University with pain when chewing and brushing teeth. During the anamnesis, repeated respiratory infections are identified during the first year of age. On clinical examination, caries was observed in the upper anterior teeth and hypomineralization of canines and primary maxillary first molars. Preventive and restorative treatment was performed using pit and fissure sealants, glass ionomer and zirconia crowns. The zirconia crown is an innovative, biocompatible, aesthetic and resistant material that can be used to treat enamel defects in the pediatric patient. There is a need for long-term clinical studies.

Key words: molar incisor hypomineralization, hypomineralization of primary molars, hypomineralization of primary canines, zirconia crowns, restoration of primary teeth.
