Stainless Steel Crowns

Fillings are suitable for small cavities in baby teeth. However stainless steel crowns are recommended for larger cavities and cavities that involve the nerve in these baby teeth. Given the small size and fragile structure of a baby tooth – crowns are much less likely than fillings to need to be replaced. With stainless steel crowns the whole tooth is covered, so future decay on that tooth is a lot less likely.  

Permanent stainless steel crowns are required in cases where a permanent molar tooth is badly broken down and not suitable for treatment with a filling. This can happen if the tooth has a very large cavity, a root canal treatment or if the tooth did not form properly. Permanent stainless steel crowns are only suitable for younger patients and will need to be replaced by a permanent crown once the patient is old enough.

At Nuala Cagney Dental & Facial Aesthetics Clinic our dentist will discuss the treatment options that are available to you. 

Routine Checkup

Your check up will include a thorough full mouth examination for dental decay.


Our dentists will be happy to discuss all of your options with you and discuss if you are suitable for a white or silver filling.


When a tooth is very badly damaged or is causing infection or pain we may need to extract or remove the tooth.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatments involve removing damaged or dead nerves and filling the space, this allows your dentist to repair the tooth that is left.


These are used to replace missing teeth and are made of plastic. Sometimes metal is also used in order to make them strong and less bulky.


Your dentist may decide to use x-rays to gain more information about your teeth, as they show what is happening inside and around the tooth and its roots.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a plastic coating placed on the biting surface of molars which are used to reduce the chances of decay on these surfaces.

Space Maintainers

Baby teeth are needed to hold space for the permanent teeth that are waiting to come in.

Sports Mouthguards

A custom-made mouthguard is one that is made by your dentist following an impression of the teeth and is fitted by your dentist.

Cancer Screening

Cancer screening is routinely carried out at your dental health check, giving us the opportunity to detect any abnormal areas in your mouth that may need further investigation.
