Dental crowns offer many benefits to patients. At Anthony Bartels DDS Family Dentistry, we often recommend dental crowns to patients who either need to protect a badly decayed or damaged tooth or cover an aesthetic flaw. A dental crown covers your entire tooth, strengthening your oral health while providing a flawless, natural look.
Dental crowns are very durable when cared for appropriately. With proper attention and oral hygiene, a dental crown could last you for a decade or more, making them well worth your investment. Our all-porcelain crowns are also stain-resistant, so you should enjoy a beautiful, bright smile for a very long time with your dental crowns!
How to Care for Your Dental Crown
Fortunately, caring for dental crowns is simple and straightforward, so you don’t have to spend much time thinking about caring for your crown after it's in place.
We have outlined a few tips to help you get the most out of your dental crown below:
- Eat tooth-healthy foods
- Adhere to a good oral hygiene routine that includes regular brushing and flossing
- Avoid consuming hard or sticky foods
- Try to break bad habits, like nail-biting or chewing on ice
- Wear a nightguard if you tend to grind your teeth or clench your jaw while sleeping
- Wear a mouthguard if you participate in physical sports or other activities
- Visit us for regular dental cleanings and exams at least once every six months
Dental crowns look and feel natural, and maintaining a crown is no more difficult for most patients than caring for their natural teeth, making them a great option for tooth restoration.
