A stainless steel crown is a type of dental crown that is made of a metal alloy called stainless steel. Dental crowns are used to cover and protect a damaged or decayed tooth, and are often recommended for teeth that are too damaged to be repaired with a filling.

Stainless steel crowns are typically used for primary (baby) teeth, as they are strong and durable and can withstand the forces of biting and chewing. They are also cost-effective and can be placed quickly, making them a good option for children who may not be able to sit still for a long period of time.

The process of placing a stainless steel crown involves the following steps:

  1. Local anesthesia is used to numb the tooth and surrounding area.
  2. The dentist removes any decay or damage from the tooth.
  3. The tooth is then shaped and prepared to receive the crown.
  4. The stainless steel crown is fitted onto the tooth and adjusted for a proper fit.
  5. The crown is then cemented into place.
