Stainless Steel Crowns

Please avoid sticky candy, (i.e., Skittles, Jelly Beans, Tootsie Rolls) as repeated chewing on sticky candy may loosen the cement that is holding the crown on the tooth.

If the silver crown comes off, the tooth may have to be anesthetized (numbing shot) in order to place a new crown. We would like to avoid this if at all possible. If the crown should come off, then please save it and call our office as soon as possible.

Our goal is to have these crowns last until the baby tooth falls out.

These tips should help meet this goal.
