Caring for Your New Dental Crowns

June 11, 2021

We are proud to offer our clients dental crowns at Artistry in Dentistry. Permanent dental crowns can work miracles for your pearly whites, and they take just a small effort to maintain. Pay attention to your dental crowns and defend your pearly whites and dental health by taking note of and practicing these tips from Dr. Sheldon Sullivan and the Artistry in Dentistry staff.

The broadest and greatest recommendation we can give about treating your permanent dental crowns is to watch out for how they’re feeling. Chompers naturally shift and change positions over time, but dental crowns do not. If your crown starts to feel too big or too little for your oral cavity, reach out to us. If you start noticing sensitivity in the tooth with the crown, it’s possible that some of the paste from the crown could have become displaced, and we’ll need to see you for repair; wobbly crowns or crowns that have fallen out will need to be repaired in our office. Finally, although it’s very unlikely, it’s possible to have an allergic reaction to metal crowns, so get in touch with us if your crown is reacting with the gums in your mouth.
