Need a Permanent Crown

Want to get a Permanent Crown?

When it comes to restoring your beautiful smile, crowns are by far the most versatile option for restoring function, correcting cosmetic defects, and strengthening your teeth.  Permanent Crown has been heavily customized for its durability and economy. The main reason for its popularity is the fact that it helps preserve your natural tooth. Crowns can last a long period if they properly care for. Here are some simple tips from a Dental Zone to ensure that your crown will give you a flawless and beautiful smile for years to come.

Avoid hard and sticky foods

Crowns are strong and durable, but like your original teeth, they can still be damaged. Hard candy and sticky, chewy foods can break or loosen the crown. Ice cream or other hard foods can crack or break your crown, which means it will need to be replaced. Sticky foods can get stuck between the gums and the crown, weakening the crown. Hence, it is recommended that you avoid this type of food whenever possible.

Brush and floss regularly

Your crown may be a denture, but the original tooth underneath and the rest of your natural teeth require routine oral care to keep your dental health in good condition. Although the crown extends over the entire surface of the natural tooth, you should still brush the crown gently to remove the plaque film from its surface. The use of dental floss is also important as food debris can get stuck between the crown and the adjacent gums or teeth.

Keep old bad habits in check

Old habits like biting your nails, chewing on pens/pencils, grinding your teeth from stress, and opening stiff bottle caps can break your crown. Not only do these habits cause the crown to break, but they can also crack or chip your natural teeth. Hard objects can also damage the gums. It’s time to break these unhealthy habits, protect your new smile crown, and maintain your oral health.

Use a night guard if necessary

Many people have a habit of grinding their teeth and clenching their teeth, which can be controlled to some extent when the person is awake. However, many people grind and even bite their teeth in their sleep. Teeth gritting and clenching is a serious problem now, but over time it can seriously affect your crown and teeth. Biting usually exerts a pressure of 200 pounds per square inch. As a result, the pressure rises sharply when polishing and tightening, with the risk of crown breakage. Visit a cosmetic dentist in Bangalore and they will tell you if you have this sorting habit by examining your teeth and gums. If you have this habit, your dentist can provide you with a custom nightguard to pad your teeth and protect your crown.

Don’t miss your regular dental checkups

It is important to go to the dentist regularly to make sure that your oral health is fine. During these routine checkups, your dentist will examine the gums around the crown and supporting teeth, as these must be healthy for a  Permanent crown to last longer.
