What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a restoration that covers or caps a tooth, restoring it to its normal size and shape while strengthening it and protecting it from further cracking or breakage. Crowns are necessary when the tooth is broken down to the point where a filling won’t be effective.
Why choose Stainless Steal Crowns?
Stainless steel crowns can preserve more of the tooth structure than other types of crowns. They withstand biting and chewing forces well and rarely chip or break. The biggest drawback of stainless steel crowns is the metallic color. They are ideal for rear teeth that are not visible, but if they are necessary for a tooth that will show, they can be created with white facings that look like a natural tooth.
