Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns (SSCs) look exactly what they sound like.  They are a silver-toned full-coverage restoration which are highly effective in sealing and protecting teeth from further bacterial invasion.

SSCs may be recommended by Dr. Eryn or Dr. Maribel for teeth that have large cavities, have had pulp therapy, or which are severely hypoplastic (ie, very weak enamel).  These crowns cover the entire tooth surface to keep the tooth structure that remains (after the cavity removal) from fracturing or getting another cavity.
