Following Crown

- Following the first appointment for a crown or bridge procedure, a provisional temporary is usually placed on the tooth or teeth involved. This will protect them while the custom restoration is being made.

- Provisional temporary crowns are of a universal shade that also serve a cosmetic function for front teeth. Your final restoration will be shaped and shaded better than the temporary to match your other teeth in both color and function.

- The use of temporary cement is for easy removal on your next appointment. If your temporary comes off between appointments, slip it back on and call us for an appointment.

- Many crowns fit below the gum- line. Therefore, you may experience some discomfort for a few days due to the irritation of that area during the procedures. Sensitivity to cold or pressure is also possible.

- After the anesthetic wears off, it may take a few days to get used to the provisional temporary crown or bridge. If you feel the bite is not correctly balanced, be sure to call our office immediately for a simple adjustment.

- We recommend professional maintenance and evaluation at least two times a year. If you have had a periodontal (gum disease) problem in the past we recommend 3 to 4 times a year.

- Proper care includes BRUSHING, FLOSSING and RINSING WITH OXYFRESH a minimum of twice daily. Proper maintenance will not only prolong the life of the restoration but will also help to prevent problems elsewhere in your mouth.
