What to Expect After Getting a Crown

Mild sensitivity in your newly crowned tooth is completely normal for a few days. You might also experience some gum discomfort, especially if adjustments were made for a perfect fit.

This is nothing to fret about and usually fades away quickly. However, if the pain persists or worsens, schedule an appointment with your dentist for peace of mind.

How to take care of a Dental Crown

Your crown might be strong, but like your natural teeth, it needs simple care. Here are some easy guidelines for a long-lasting smile:

Brushing and flossing

Make brushing a twice-daily habit with a soft brush and fluoride toothpaste. Reach every nook and cranny, especially where the crown meets the gum.

Floss is your ally for cleaning those hidden areas, so use it gently to avoid damaging the crown.

Avoid bad habits

Chewing ice, using your teeth as tools, or clenching your jaw can put your crown under stress. Be mindful of these habits, as they could damage or loosen it.

Enjoy food wisely

While your crown is tough, it’s best to avoid excessively hard or sticky foods like candies or popcorn. Crunchy fruits and veggies might also require a bit more gentle chewing.

Regular visits to your dentist

Remember, dental checkups are essential for optimal oral health. In our clinic in Downtown Phoenix, we recommend scheduling appointments every 6 months to ensure your crown and the rest of your smile are sparkling.

Bonus tip: Did you know that at Somos Dental, we offer cosmetic crowns starting at $699? That’s right, a perfect smile doesn’t have to cost a fortune!
