As the anesthetic begins to wear off, you may experience some sensitivity around the treated area. Brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste such as Sensodyne may help ease this minor discomfort.
If you experience sensitivity when biting down, this may indicate that the dental crown is sitting too high on the tooth and can be easily fixed by Dr. Oueis at Oueis Dentistry.
Sometimes tooth crowns made of porcelain develop chips. Usually the chip can be easily repaired with composite resin. However if the chip is severe, the crown may require replacing.
If your crown feels loose, contact Dr. Oueis at Oueis Dentistry to have your dental crown re-cemented. Sometimes the dental cement washes out from under the crown. This is an easy fix. However, you don't want to allow bacteria to leak under the restoration and cause decay.
