What Can I Eat With a Dental Crown?
With a permanent dental crown, you can eat just about anything you eat with your natural tooth. With a temporary crown, you need to be careful to not eat anything sticky, like caramel or taffy, that would dislodge the crown.

How Do I Care For My Dental Crowns?
Like your natural teeth, dental crowns need care to prevent breakage and other damage over time. The tooth beneath the crown can also get cavities, the crown itself can chip or break, and other issues may arise with poor oral hygiene.
Once you've had a crown placed, it's important to brush, floss, and rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash at least twice daily.
You'll also need to avoid chewing hard objects and foods, especially if you have a natural-looking crown. Crowns can discolor in some cases.
You also need to continue your regular exams and cleanings throughout the year to maintain the health of your dental crown and the tooth beneath, along with your other teeth.
