Stainless Steel Crowns
What is a stainless steel crown?
It is not uncommon for teeth or even permanent teeth to crack, break or otherwise become compromised. In order to protect the mouth and cover areas that are sharp and jagged, we may suggest having a stainless steel crown placed. This crown is made out of stainless steel and is custom fitted to your smile. This ensures that it feels comfortable and works well to enhance their oral functioning
Why is A STAINLESS STEEL CROWN needed?
There are several reasons for why you may need a stainless steel crown. In most cases, it’s recommended to have a crown placed when a tooth has broken or cracked. A tooth that is broken may feel jagged and sharp, so placing a crown can cover these areas and smooth dentition. Another reason a stainless steel crown may be needed is because you have had a root canal and needs to protect the now-vulnerable tooth.
What does A STAINLESS STEEL CROWN involve?
In order to determine if a crown is needed the doctor will perform an exam and check your teeth. Most people who need a crown can safely have one placed. The crown is made to fit over your tooth perfectly. It can last for many years, and stainless steel crowns are incredibly durable and long-lasting.
What can you expect with A STAINLESS STEEL CROWN?
We begin by filing down the tooth that will be crowned. We offer a variety of different sedation options for you to make the appointment more comfortable. We then take impressions of the tooth and use these to make a new stainless steel crown. The crown is permanently placed over the tooth and helps in restoring functionality to you mouth.
