STAINLESS STEEL and ZIRCONIA CROWNS
Stainless steel and zirconia crowns are indicated when the size, shape and depth of decay exceeds ideal and a tooth colored filling material is no longer indicated. Crowns restore badly broken down teeth and primary molars that have undergone nerve treatments. Crowns protect the teeth from further damage, and restores the tooth to a more ideal contour and position in the mouth. After all of the decay has been removed, crowns are cemented with dental cement. The primary tooth that has a crown will be shed normally at the appropriate time.
