What are Stainless Steel Crowns?
Small cavities in primary
(baby teeth) can be repaired with fillings, because after
the decay has been removed there is still plenty of tooth
structure remaining to hold the filling. However, when a
primary (baby) tooth has a large cavity, there may not be
enough tooth structure remaining to place a filling. In this
case, a stainless steel crown would be used to cover the
damaged tooth after the decay has been removed. this
strengthens and protects the tooth until it falls out and is
replaced by the permanent tooth.
