A dental crown is a fixed dental restoration that covers the visible portion of the tooth. A dental crown is designed and created specifically for your smile. Drs. Calpas, Handrix, and Amundson may recommend a dental crown in Big Lake, Minnesota, to:

– Support a tooth that has had a large or multiple fillings
– Protect a weak or cracked tooth from breaking
– Hold a broken tooth together
– Support a dental bridge
– Restore a dental implant
– Support a tooth that has had root canal treatment

A dental crown can last a lifetime, but they can become loose or fall out. To help your dental crown last for as long as possible, practice proper dental hygiene. You should brush your teeth, and your new crown, twice a day. In addition, it is imperative that you floss daily, including the area around your crown. Also, visit Monticello Dental Center at least twice a year for a professional dental cleaning and exam. In addition to these things, it is important that you prevent damage to your new dental crown by avoiding chewing on hard foods, ice, or other hard things.
