West Fargo cosmetic dentistry patients who get a dental crown should not assume that the tooth is now invincible. Crowns need daily cleaning and flossing just like natural teeth. The remaining tooth structure just around the gumline could still become decayed and the soft tissue around the crown is susceptible to gum disease. Chewing hard foods or using your teeth as a tool can cause a crown to crack or break. (Use scissors to open a stubborn plastic package – don’t bite and pull!) Your Fargo cosmetic dentist can advise you on caring for your new crown so that it will last as long as possible. Some of our Casselton patients have crowns that are still looking beautiful after ten years.
