In cases where a tooth is severely decayed, fractured, or weakened, dental crowns may be necessary to restore its function and appearance. At North Shore Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we offer both stainless steel crowns (SSC) and white zirconia crowns. Stainless steel crowns are commonly used for primary teeth due to their durability and cost-effectiveness. Stainless steel crowns (SSC) are particularly suitable for posterior teeth and molars. They provide excellent protection and strength for teeth that have extensive decay or are at risk of further damage. SSCs are pre-formed and custom-fitted to your child’s tooth, ensuring a precise and comfortable fit.
In addition to stainless steel crowns, we also offer white zirconia crowns as an aesthetic alternative for visible front teeth. These crowns are made from a strong, tooth-colored ceramic material that closely resembles the natural appearance of the tooth. White zirconia crowns are highly durable and provide an excellent long-term solution for restoring the function and beauty of your child’s smile.
