Primary Teeth Crowns
The loss of primary teeth can cause space problems in the jaw. That is why we focus on preserving diseased primary teeth to ensure that the ensuing permanent teeth have enough space. Stainless steel crowns are made specifically for primary teeth. With stainless steel crowns even severely damaged teeth can be retained for chewing and space maintenance.
Situations suitable for stainless steel crowns:
- Deep cavities or large carious lesions
- Endodontically treated teeth
- Primary molars with enamel defects
- Severely damaged permanent teeth in young adults as a provisional crown until the laboratory constructed “permanent crowns” can be fitted
Stainless Steel Crown
The stainless steel crowns are pre-fabricated silver-coloured crowns specially made for primary molar teeth. They maintain the chewing function until the permanent teeth erupt. The material is a high quality stainless steel, just like the metals used in fixed braces in older children having their teeth straightened. Allergic reactions have not been reported.
With the help of these white stainless steel crowns, we can offer your child a natural radiant smile! This crown has the same functions as the SSC but with the added advantage of being aesthetically pleasant.
Crowns for the Front Teeth
The reason for caries in toddlers is often the regular and prolonged use of a bottle. Their teeth are usually so severely carious that the only treatment possible is either to extract or to fit crowns.
Available for anterior teeth caries are strip-crowns. These are tiny little plastic pre-formed caps that are used to form the crown. The strip-crowns are filled with composite and like a filling the remnant of the crown is restored.
