How to keep Cosmetic Dental Crowns looking their best

Many patients get dental crowns for different reasons. Typically, if your teeth are stained, damaged, or chipped, you may need dental crowns. They are also likely to be in the mix if you have a dental implant, root canal, or bridge. One striking benefit about dental crowns is that they are durable enough to last up to 15 years. However, this depends on how you take care of them. No worries, though — Esquire Dental Centres in North York, Ontario, has narrowed down the four best ways to maintain your dental crowns for many years to come.

Brush and floss

This is obvious, but we will still say it. You should maintain your crowns the same way you maintain your natural teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing daily. At-home oral care ensures gum disease and tooth decay won’t compromise the structural integrity of your dental crown. Oral diseases may loosen your crown, exposing the underlying tooth.

Avoid chewing hard substances

If you are one of those who enjoy removing bottle caps with your teeth, this needs to be stopped as it will shorten the lifespan of your crowns. Also, avoid chewing hard foods like ice or candy. While your dental crowns are tough, it doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable. Biting or chewing hard substances may dislodge or break your crowns.

Use a night guard

It’s one thing trying to stop a habit like teeth clenching when you are awake; at least then, you are conscious of your actions. However, most people grind their teeth while sleeping, meaning they have little control over this behaviour. For this reason, you need a night guard to protect your crowns from grinding and clenching.
