What Are Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are a very common choice for a pediatric dentist. These crowns are ideal for molars as these particular teeth face the most pressure from eating or grinding. Since molars are in the back of the mouth, the stainless-steel crowns are less visible when used. The stainless-steel crowns are placed on the back teeth when the decay is past the point of being resolved with a regular filling. These crowns are usually well-hid and extremely durable.

All White Crowns

Our office is also pleased to offer all-white ceramic crowns. These crowns are fabricated to look natural and to blend in with the surrounding natural teeth. Each crown is composed of a white tooth-colored material that looks like a normal tooth and is polished to a smooth and shiny finish. Each crown is made to be undetectable from the front or inside of the mouth. Your children’s dentist will often recommend an all-white crown for tooth repair that may visible when your child smiles.
