care for crown grand rapids mi dentist

Proper home care is very important, so please read the following information. Please treat your permanent dental crown with care for the next 24 hours. Be sure to avoid both hard and sticky foods. Also, it’s best to wait at least one full day before flossing teeth.


Having a crown placed is a fairly intensive procedure for your teeth and there is always healing time involved. If your teeth are sensitive to temperatures and when biting down, that is expected for several weeks, or even up to several months. Please expect there to be a period of healing. Ibuprofen or Tylenol may help alleviate these symptoms.


If you experience constant, spontaneous, throbbing tooth pain with or without swelling, please give one of our offices a call IMMEDIATELY.

You should also contact our dentists if your bite feels abnormal, drastically different than before, or if the new dental crown is causing issues with your mouth closing normally.
