3M ESPE Stainless Steel Crowns, Permanent Molar

  • For extensive caries involvement of a young permanent tooth requiring full coronal restoration. However, due to incomplete eruption, large pulp spaces, or uncertain eventual orthodontic status of the patient, a long-term precision cast crown is not a treatment option.
  • For extensive caries involvement of a permanent posterior tooth that requires a "sedative" type restoration, but its retention is uncertain. A stainless steel crown will allow time for pulpal healing and establishing a long-term restorative treatment plan.
  • As an interim restoration for posterior teeth with cracked tooth syndrome
  • As an interim restoration for a traumatically fractured posterior tooth involving significant coronal damage.
  • As an interim, affordable restorative option for patients who must delay treatment due to financial considerations.
  • As an interim restoration for an extensively damaged endodontically treated tooth. As full coverage for teeth with developmental defects such as amelogenesis imperfecta, dentino-genesis imperfecta, or enamel hypoplasia.
