On baby teeth, stainless steel crowns have been highly successful. As they are constructed, they fit snugly on teeth and carry out all the essential duties that a tooth's crown would. It is also very practical that the stainless steel crown will simply and painlessly come off when the milk tooth does. The dental crown is further made to persist till the tooth really falls off. Up until that point, you won't need to visit the dentist frequently. SSCs, also known as stainless steel crowns, are prefabricated metal crowns that aid in safeguarding infant (primary) teeth. As their name suggests, these are metal crowns constructed of stainless steel that also contains nickel and chromium.
When is a Dental Crown Necessary?
A damaged tooth can be restored with dental crowns. Dental crowns are used by dentists to restore weak, decaying, and broken teeth. They improve the stability and functionality of the injured tooth, restore the tooth's natural look, and serve as a prosthesis during dental implant treatments.
What is the process of getting Stainless Steel Crown
Types of Stainless Steel Crowns
Pre-shaped crowns These crowns are festooned and pre-contoured. Although generally minimal, some contouring and trimming may be necessary. If the crown has to be trimmed, the pre-contour is gone and it will fit less snugly. They shorten the time spent operating. However, some cutting and shaping could be required. PRIMITIVE CROWNS These crowns feature straight, non-contoured sides that go parallel to the gingival crest. The crowns still require trimming and contouring. These are structures with straight sides that are parallel to the gingival crest. However, they still require cutting as well as contouring. PREDATORY CROWNS These are the crowns that use resin-based composite to produce a posterior crown that is more aesthetically pleasing. The buccal and occlusal surfaces are where they are attached. They cost more than the other stainless steel crowns, call for tooth reduction, and only permit a minimal amount of crimping for crown adaption. CROWNS MADE OF ALLOY STEEL WITH WHITE FACINGS There are steel crowns with pre-veneered plastic facings, which improve the aesthetics of the steel crowns, especially when it comes to front teeth. Due to the fact that they are "white," these appear considerably better. But more bulk has to be added for the white face to adhere to the metal. This makes sure the crown has a rounded or bulbous appearance. Also keep in mind that the white front may eventually chip off, revealing the silver crown underneath. Children who grind their teeth frequently tend to chip more frequently. The back is under strain as a result.
Problems with Stainless Steel Crown
undesirable in terms of appearance cannot be used if the patient has a nickel allergy. Significant amounts of tooth structure are lost. due to the retention of extra cement, there is gingival irritation Most often, stainless steel crowns are utilised as a stopgap while a crown composed of a different material is being produced. Since porcelain crowns are created to match your teeth's colour, they fit well. Both the front and back teeth are thought to benefit from porcelain crowns. When fitting a main tooth that has been constructed to fit a youngster, stainless steel crowns are utilised. All across the world, dentists and orthodontists utilise dental crowns made of porcelain or stainless steel.
Precautions before permanent crown is fixed
You'd usually get a temporary crown in your first visit. These are the few precautions since temporary dental crowns are just a temporary repair until a permanent crown is available.
- Avoid chewy, sticky foods like caramel and chewing gum because they can grasp the crown and pull it off.
- Use the side of your mouth that has the temporary crown as little as possible. Move most of your chewing to the other side of your mouth.
- Avoid chewing tough foods like raw vegetables because doing so could shatter or dislodge the crown.
- When cleaning in between your teeth, slide the dental floss rather than lifting it out to prevent ripping off the temporary crown
Precautions after the treatment
The crown needs to be kept clean just like you would take care of your natural teeth. While the crown itself cannot deteriorate, the area where the crown's edge meets the tooth can do so. Dental crowns typically last five to fifteen years. The amount of "wear and tear" a crown experiences depends on how well you practise good oral hygiene, and your own mouth-related behaviours can all affect how long a crown will last. These oral habits may include the following:
- Your teeth are being ground or clenched.
- ice chewing.
- gnawing on one's fingernails
- Make use of your teeth to open containers.
Additional tips for better & brighter teeth are
- Floss your teeth at least once daily
- Brush at least twice daily
- Avoid chewing on hard foods
- Wear a night guard if you grind your teeth
- Come in for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings
