Acero3S crowns, crafted from surgical-grade 316L stainless steel resistant to corrosion than 304 stainless steel used by competitors, are preformed and pre-contoured (or commonly referred to as “pre-crimped”) with a shallow occlusal anatomy to preserve healthy tooth structure with less tooth reduction. The bell-shaped crowns that replicate contacts and embrasures of natural dentition are created with optimal thickness throughout to prevent occlusal wear from mastication. The autoclave-proof, laser-etched crowns with easy to read numbers crafted by military veterans in Dallas, Texas, are 100% interchangeable with other leading brands. Available at Half the Prices of leading brands.

Compare 3S Molar to the XT Molar

Acero XT Molar - The original crown that launched Acero back in 2007.  This crown was specifically designed to be slightly shorter in crown height for ease of placement for those dentists that tended to cut and trim their crowns often. It is a favorite of most dentists with over 10 million crowns sold.

Acero 3S Molar - Acero’s newest line of molar crowns in standard crown height. The 3S molar sizing is similar to the other brand name crowns on the market. 

Both the XT and 3S have the following desirable traits: They are both bell shaped, come in 48 pre-contoured sizes for fast easy placement, shallow occlusal anatomy and 100% surgical grade stainless steel.

    “I switched to Acero Crowns because I found that the Acero crown was equal to 3M ion ni-chro crown and 44% less. When Medicaid is reducing the reimbursement amount, I had to look for similar quality supplies that were less.”

    — Bruce Howell DDS, Provo, UT

    “I went to a dental conference years ago when Acero just started. I liked the thickness and make of their crowns so I got a starter kit to try. Since then, these are the only crowns I'll buy. The quality is far superior than other makers. Our pediatric practice places thousands of crowns a year and Acero crowns hold up better than the competitor's brand. The quality and price can't be beat!”

    — Conway Jensen DDS, Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

    “We have been using Acero Crowns for the last two years and could not be happier! The fit of the crowns is great, and the quality is excellent. Furthermore, the customer service is amazing. Communication is key to success, and it's great to know that we have a vendor that responds quickly and effectively and can help us navigate through any issues. I would definitely recommend Acero Crowns not only for the product itself, but for the people who stand behind the product.”

    — Dr. William Pena, DMD
