What Are Stainless Steel Crowns

Sometimes when children get a cavity that involves more than two surfaces of the tooth, a filling may not be adequate and a crown will need to be placed on the tooth to restore it. Teeth that have had previous pulpotomy treatment (nerve treatment) will also require stainless steel crowns to protect the tooth and provide strength. Stainless steel crowns are very predictable and long-lasting restorations for teeth in these situations.
