Dental crowns have come a long way in terms of durability and appearance. While past crowns were made of metal alloy, today’s models are crafted from beautiful porcelain. Not only does this material boost the appearance of a crown, but it also makes them less vulnerable to breakage and cracking. Porcelain crowns are stain-resistant and decay-resistant, but this doesn’t mean they are invincible.

Just like your natural teeth, your dental crown needs to be properly cared for if you want it to stay in top condition. This can protect your restorative dentistry investment and extend the life of your dental crown.

Stay Diligent with Oral Hygiene
While it is true that your actual dental crown can’t get a cavity, that doesn’t mean that decay can’t get underneath your crown and impact the health of your underlying tooth. It is very important that you brush and floss daily, with special attention to your crown margins, or the area where the crown meets your natural tooth and gum line.

Stop Bad Habits
Do you grind your teeth? Chew pencils? Bite your nails? These can wreak havoc on the condition of your dental crowns. To protect your crown from damage, kick your bad dental habits or ask your dentist about a custom mouthguard if you grind your teeth at night.

See Your Dentist Regularly
Don’t wait until your crown is severely damaged or fallen off to see a dentist. To ensure you catch crown issues at their earliest, most treatable stage, maintain your regular dental visits – which should be at least twice a year! These appointments are typically covered by your dental insurance plan and can be a major tool for protecting the lifespan of your crown.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
