Stainless Steel Dental Crowns
Contrary to popular misconception, a damaged baby tooth is a serious concern requiring treatment. However, it does not need to be expensive. We offer stainless steel crowns, providing Greensboro families with a fast, affordable, and durable solution.
When a crown is needed
A crown covers the entire tooth, restoring its size, shape, and strength. It also protects the tooth from damage or wear. Generally, there are two reasons a crown may be necessary.
- Advanced decay has compromised a large portion of the tooth. If a cavity is treated when it is small, a simple filling is sufficient. However, if the tooth is no longer strong enough to support a filling, it will need to be crowned.
- The tooth is badly fractured, or part of it is broken off, it may need a crown to restore it.

Stainless Steel Crowns are a great option for a tooth with a large decay.

White fillings cannot be used on hard to reach surfaces.
Whether or not a child can use a white filling depends on the depth of the tooth decay and if they have any other oral or genetic issues.
