Stainless Steel Crowns
When your child has a tooth with a large cavity on it, this can mean that it went deep enough to reach the tooth nerve (pulp). If it reaches the tooth pulp, then it will need pulpal therapy. This treatment is done to remove the infected tissue in the nerve so that the tooth can be saved. If this happens, a Stainless Steel or “Silver” Crown is usually recommended to help protect the remaining tooth. This is the most successful option when it comes to restoring the tooth.
