If your child’s smile has suffered from decay or damage, our dentists can repair and restore their teeth with stainless steel crowns. Stainless steel crowns are best used on baby teeth that have extensive decay, are damaged or suffer from any other serious defects. Preserving baby teeth is crucial for the proper development of your child’s adult teeth. Stainless steel crowns provide full coverage and protection for your child’s tooth and are less likely to require retreatment later. They are usually more successful than metal fillings, especially in children that are younger than 4 years old and the crowns have very little sensitivity.
Stainless steel crowns are durable and tend to last longer than other crowns and are a good choice for molars. They are designed to withstand pressure from normal oral functions such as chewing. These crowns are typically placed in one visit with our dentists and will be tailored to securely fit your child’s tooth. Once placed, your child will be able to smile, eat, and talk normally.
