Your tooth may be sensitive after the procedure, but this should ease. Some temperature sensitivity may remain; your dentist may recommend a sensitivity toothpaste. Pain when biting may mean the crown is too high and will need adjustment.
Porcelain crowns may chip over time. We can repair small chips without removing the crown, but if there is enough damage, the crown needs to be replaced.
If the dental cement securing your crown washes or wears away, your crown becomes loose, and allows bacteria to seep into your tooth. If your dental crown is loose, come in to have it fixed. If a crown falls off completely, you should come in as soon as possible, but we will advise you on how to care for your tooth in the meantime. We are sometimes able to reattach the crown, but it may be necessary to get a new one.
