Why Choose Stainless Steel Dental Crowns for my Child
Not every rotten tooth has to go. Sometimes, a damaged tooth can still be saved so your child can keep their natural baby tooth until the adult one comes through. This helps prevent crowding, and allows your child to eat easier.
What are Stainless Steel Dental Crowns?
Sometimes, your child's teeth can get decayed and so damaged that a routine filling can’t cut it; it will just break, or fall out. However, a tooth extraction may also be too extreme, and early the loss of a tooth may cause other issues. This is why we opt to use stainless steel dental crowns.
Put simply, it is a full coverage restoration that covers the entire tooth from the gum line up. This helps bring back the damaged tooth’s shape and strength so you have the same or even better chewing power compared to your natural tooth.
Stainless steel dental crowns are strong and durable, making it a good choice for many children. The smooth and polished surface makes it easy to keep clean and are safe.
Why Should My Child Have a Stainless Steel Crown?
There are many reasons why your dentist may recommend a stainless steel dental crown for your child:
+ To hold together cracked teeth and prevent early loss of a tooth
+ To protect a weak tooth due to decay
+ To restore a worn down tooth
+ To support and cover little remaining tooth with a large filling
