Crowns and Bridges

Most crowns and bridges can be fabricated the same day, there are a few cases that will need a temporary crown. If a temporary crown is created before you receive your permanent one. It is normal for the gum around the tooth to be tender for awhile. We will check the temporary crown. You should be careful when cleaning and eating since the crown is only temporary and may come off.

Once the permanent crown or bridge is placed, there may be sensitivity and irritation. Warm salt water rinses will speed the healing process. Sometimes root canal treatment is needed in conjunction with crowns.

Scaling and Root Planing

Your gums can be sore and irritated for a few days after the procedure. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water about 2-3 times a day to relieve pain and cleanse the area. Brush your teeth gently so that you do not further irritate the area.


The process of your getting your veneers usually starts with receiving temporary veneers. These temporary veneers are very fragile and are attached to the underlying tooth structure with temporary cement. Avoid eating hot or cold food and drink, as well as heavy brushing and flossing to their area.

After your permanent veneers are bonded to your teeth, avoid chewing excessively hard foods. Your mouth will slowly adjust to your veneers and it should feel like your natural teeth within a week.
