When some people hear the words “cosmetic dentist,” they automatically think of treatments such as teeth whitening, that mainly affect the appearance of teeth. However, there is often both cosmetic and health benefits with some dental restorations. That’s the case with crowns. Crowns can give teeth a rejuvenated, uniform appearance. However, they also can protect teeth, hold dental bridges in place, or to provide restorations for dental implants. Innovative Dental By Dr. A, in Philadelphia is a great search result for a “cosmetic dentist near me” search!
A crown is a restoration that is installed over a weakened tooth. It covers the tooth and strengthens it, as well as improving the shape, size, and appearance of the tooth.
The best way to ensure that your crown lasts is to take proper care of it. Thankfully, this is simple, if you already have an optimal oral hygiene routine in place. It’s best to have a soft-bristled toothbrush, toothpaste for sensitive teeth, dental floss, and antibacterial mouthwash. Brush your teeth with the soft-bristled toothbrush twice daily. The sensitive tooth toothpaste is for directly after your procedure. Sometimes, your gum line can become inflamed during dental procedures. This will help prevent further inflammation. Floss daily! To floss the crown properly, place the floss on one side of the tooth and pull it up gently along the tooth. Don’t move the floss back and forth along your gum line as this has the potential to loosen the crown. Antibacterial mouthwash assists in killing bacteria along the gum line. It is also best, going forward, to avoid sticky foods, chewing them possibly will loosen the crown. If possible, chew sticky or hard foods on the opposite side of the mouth from where the crown has been placed. Make sure to see Dr. A, twice annually, for your dental cleanings. He will use these appointments to check any crowns you’ve had installed to ensure that they are still firmly held in place, not chipped, cracked, or broken. Routine dental visits do wonders to assist us in spotting issues before they become a problem for you.
