How do I care for my dental crown?
A dental crown or cap in our Lake Worth, FL dental office is generally made of porcelain or Zirconia. These strong crowns cover a damaged or unsightly tooth to improve your smile, help your bite, and keep your tooth viable.
Dental crowns are unique because they match the shape and shade of surrounding teeth.
As far as longevity, a dental crown can last for a long time if you take care of it and incorporate a few best practices into your oral health routine.
Here are a few tips to help you take care of your dental crown:
- See our top dentist regularly for assessments
