What Are Stainless Steel Crowns?

Stainless steel crowns are protective caps that are placed over a child’s primary (baby) teeth. They are made of biocompatible stainless steel material, which is safe, durable, and suitable for children. Stainless steel crowns are specifically designed to provide strength and protection for teeth that are extensively decayed, broken, or damaged. They are an excellent treatment option for restoring functionality and aesthetics to your child’s smile.
