How to Care for Your New Same-Day Crown

How to Care for Your New Same-Day Crown - New York, NY Same-day crowns, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC), are a revolutionary advancement in dentistry that allows patients to receive a custom-made, high-quality ceramic crown in just one visit. This convenient and efficient process eliminates multiple appointments and temporary crowns. 

Here’s how to care for your new same-day crown.

Oral Hygiene Practices

Brush your teeth twice daily with soft-bristled and fluoride toothpaste, paying particular attention to the areas around the crown. Flossing once daily is also essential to remove plaque and food particles from hard-to-reach places.

Additionally, consider using an antibacterial mouthwash to further reduce the risk of plaque buildup and gum disease, which can compromise the integrity of your same-day crown.

Dietary Considerations

While same-day crowns are designed to be durable and long-lasting, it’s essential to be mindful of certain foods and habits that can potentially damage or stain your new restoration. 

Avoid biting directly into hard or sticky foods, such as nuts, hard candies, or ice, as these can cause cracks or dislodge the crown.

Be cautious when consuming highly pigmented foods and beverages, such as red wine, coffee, and berries, as they can stain the ceramic material over time. If you indulge in these foods or drinks, brush or rinse your mouth thoroughly afterward to minimize staining.

Regular Dental Check-Ups

Even with diligent at-home care, regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are essential. Your dentist will closely monitor the condition of your same-day crown, ensuring that it remains appropriately fitted and free from any issues, such as cracks, chips, or decay around the margins.

During these appointments, your dentist can also provide professional cleaning and polishing, removing any stubborn stains or buildup that may have accumulated on the crown’s surface.
