STAINLESS STEEL CROWN
The stainless steel crown (SSC) is the most durable, long-lasting dental restoration for primary teeth. It covers and protects the tooth until it is naturally lost. The SSC is indicated when:
- The cavity is large and covers multiple surfaces of the tooth
- The child is at a high risk for future cavities
- A tooth has received a nerve treatment.
The SSC is an economical, time-efficient, mercury-free dental restoration that has a 60-year track record for durability and safety!
A child with severe decay on his or her front teeth may require this type of esthetic crown. A stainless steel crown is coated with an attractive resin material and the crown is placed over the tooth after the decay is removed. This is a great restorative option to maintain teeth that may otherwise require extraction.
If a child has anterior (front) tooth decay, a resin crown may be the treatment of choice. The resin crown is an all white crown that can be the most esthetic type of restoration for primary teeth and is used when decay is not extensive and the gums are healthy.
