At Vital Dental Center, our dental crowns are beautiful, strong, tooth-shaped caps that cover existing damaged teeth or replace lost teeth when attached to a dental implant. Shaped like your unique, natural tooth, a porcelain crown is a great replacement or restoration for a lost, damaged, or weak tooth. Depending on your dental conditions, the crown can be put on in one day or multiple appointments.
The longevity of your dental crown will depend on your care. Firstly, you will need to practice careful brushing. Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day and use toothpaste for sensitive teeth. This would relax the nerves in your teeth and gums. Next, make flossing a regular habit. Finally, do not eat food that is too hard to chew as that can cause your crown to crack. If you face any problems, call your dentist immediately.
