It is important to know that a crown is not a permanent solution, and that the underlying tooth which the crown is sitting upon, is still prone to decay and gum disease. Therefore, good oral hygiene, and a limited sugar intake frequency in the diet is imperative.
The ceramic on the surface of crowns can sometimes chip of fracture. The risk of this can be minimised by avoiding excessive hard foods.
Regular check ups are therefore necessary to keep up with a maintenance programme.
