Strip Crowns

What is Strip Crown?

Strip crowns for kids are pre-made dental crowns tailored to restore primary (baby) teeth with severe decay or damage. They serve as a temporary solution until permanent teeth replace baby teeth. Typically crafted from flexible materials like transparent poly material, stainless steel, or nickel-chromium alloy, strip crowns fit over the remaining portion of the tooth, restoring its form, size, and function. They’re often used after pulpotomy or pulpectomy procedures and aid in preventing additional decay or damage. Moreover, they assist in maintaining space for forthcoming permanent teeth.

Why are Strip Crowns Needed?

When a baby tooth has significant decay, fractures, or other damage that cannot be effectively treated with a filling, a strip crown may be recommended. Strip crowns help to:

  • Protect the tooth from further decay or damage
  • Restore proper function for chewing and speaking
  • Preserve space for permanent teeth to erupt correctly
  • Improve the appearance of severely damaged teeth, boosting a child’s confidence in their smile

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Strip crowns are prefabricated dental crowns designed to restore primary (baby) teeth that are severely decayed or damaged. They cover the entire tooth, restoring its shape, size, and function.

    Strip crowns are necessary when a baby tooth has significant decay, is broken or fractured, or has undergone a pulpotomy or pulpectomy. They help protect the tooth from further damage and maintain space for permanent teeth.

    Strip crowns can be made from various materials, including transparent poly material, stainless steel, and nickel-chromium alloy. These materials are chosen for their durability and suitability for children's teeth.

    The procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the complexity and the number of teeth being treated.

    Local anesthesia is used to numb the affected tooth and surrounding area, ensuring that the procedure is pain-free. For very young or anxious children, sedation options are also available.
