Purpose: This study aimed to compare the clinical and radiographic success of preveneered posterior NuSmile® and Kinder Krowns® over one year and to assess the level of parental satisfaction with their esthetics. Methods: Three trained operators placed 120 crowns in a split-mouth design with a random allocation for 36 participants (mean age: 5.8 years) who received two, four, six, or eight crowns. Blind assessment of the clinical and radiographic performance of the restorations was performed by four calibrated examiners after one year. Results were analyzed by Fisher's exact test and McNemar test. Examiner reliability was determined by Cohen's kappa score. Visual analogue scale (VAS) was used to assess the level of parental satisfaction. Results: All crowns but one were retained, and the majority (83 percent) had no facing fractures. Parental satisfaction was high (9.4/10 on the VAS). Primary maxillary first molar crowns had more occlusal facing fractures than their mandibular counterparts (P=.02). Primary mandibular second molar crowns showed more facing fractures than their maxillary counterparts (P=.008). Both types showed no statistical difference in most categories, but Kinder Krowns had more facing fractures (P<.02). Conclusion: Posterior preveneered crowns have predictable durability at 12 months while offering natural appearance to restored teeth.
