Mouthful of Silver Surprises Mother Expecting Basic Dental Work

Posted on

A mother in Arizona was recently informed by her daughter’s dentist that the girl had accumulated four cavities which required treatment.  The mother consented to the procedure, and the dentist then carried out the operation.  The family went home, and all seemed well.  That is, until the mom looked into her daughter’s mouth and discovered that the dentist covered every tooth with a silver crown.  The dental work has since been fixed by the free implantation of white veneers by another dentist.  So why did this happen?  The president of the Arizona Academy of Pediatric Dentistry thinks that the girl may be at risk of tooth decay.  If this were the case, the crowns could prevent further damage.
