Stainless Steel Crown

When decay has destroyed a tooth to the extent that there is little support for a filling,or a nerve treatment has to be performed,it is best to cover the tooth with a crown. This will prevent the tooth from being fractured. After removal of all of the decay, a stainless steel crown is used to restore back teeth and occasionally front teeth where plastic is not easily retained.


To avoid the cost and time of replacement, please avoid sticky foods such as hard candy,caramel and taffy.


The crowned tooth will usually fall out normally when the permanent tooth is ready to come in.
