Stainless steel crowns

When a posterior primary tooth has a very large cavity then a stainless steel crown is placed instead of a filling. Also, a stainless steel crown may be placed if the tooth has multiple small cavities, or when a root canal or pulpotomy is done on the tooth.

The stainless steel crown is made of pure stainless steel and it is a prefabricated crown that comes in several sizes. After the preparation of the tooth we choose the right size which we crimp and contour to the correct form and then we cement it on the tooth.

This stainless steel crown functions perfectly as if a regular tooth and since it is cemented on the tooth it will fall off along with the tooth when the normal exfoliation time comes.
