Home Care Instructions for Permanent Dental Crowns


If you were given anesthesia during your procedure, don’t chew anything until normal feeling has returned to your mouth.

Following the procedure:

  • Don’t chew for the first hour.

  • Don’t eat any hard or sticky foods for the first day.

  • Brush as you normally would, but floss carefully. Remove floss from the side of the tooth, rather than in an upward motion.

  • You may experience gum soreness for a few days, but contact the dental office if this soreness persists or gets worse.

  • Cold sensitivity is normal and is the result of the nerve reacting to the procedure. Use a sensitivity protection toothpaste if necessary until the problem subsides.


After your initial recovery:

  • Brush and floss normally.

  • Avoid chewing ice and other hard objects.

  • If you notice any cold sensitivity, use a desensitizing toothpaste. If your sensitivity continues for more than a week or seems to be getting worse, please call Santa Rosa Dental.

  • If your bite feels abnormal or if you have any other concerns, please contact the office to have your crown adjusted.
