We are proud to provide our clients dental crowns at Sweeney Utterback Dentistry. Permanent dental crowns can work wonders for your chompers, and they take only a little effort to maintain. Monitor your dental crowns and protect your teeth and dental health by taking note of and practicing the following tips from Dr. Bruce Utterback and Pia Sweeney and the Sweeney Utterback Dentistry staff.

The broadest and greatest recommendation we can give you about caring for your permanent dental crowns is to pay attention to how they’re feeling. Pearly whites naturally move around and move over time, but dental crowns (which are inorganic) do not. If your crown starts feeling too big or too small for your oral cavity, give us a call. If you begin noticing sensitivity in the tooth with the crown, it’s possible that some of the glue from the crown could have become displaced, and we’ll need to see you for repair; wobbly crowns or crowns that have fallen off will also need to be fixed in our office. Finally, although it’s very uncommon, it’s possible to have a reaction to metal crowns, so reach out to us if your crown is reacting with the gums in your oral cavity.
