Striking Smile

Do I have to avoid certain foods with a dental crown?

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Dental crowns are designed to be durable and to function much like your own teeth. You need to use common sense, however, and avoid biting down directly on foods like hard candy or nuts. A broken crown not only requires replacement, but you may also damage underlying healthy tooth structure.
