Stainless Steel Crowns

Most often cavities on kids teeth affects the joint between two teeth (contact areas) and many times cavities affect multiple surfaces of the same teeth. In these areas generally the fillings fail very often. Hence a more durable, ready made preformed metal (Stainless Steel) crown is widely used in Pediatric Dentistry. They are generally as good as their original teeth except for the color. Extensive research has time and again proven stainless steel crowns were the most durable restorations compared to any other permanent filling material available. Anterior stainless steel crowns are used to build extensively broken down front teeth.
