Do not eat within 60 minutes after attaching the crowns
If experiencing bulging, entanglement or misalignment when biting 2 teeth together, please return to the clinic for adjustment, do not chew if there is a bulge as it can break the crown.
Brush normally including the porcelain crowns.
YOU SHOULD NOT Bite, tear food that is too hard or too hot with your porcelain crowns.
Do not drink hot drinks (implant fixtures are usually made of metal so that it can absorb heat much more than normal tissue, using hot drinks can affect the tissues around the fixtures).
Do not eat hot and cold food at the same time (Crowns are made of porcelain, because of that it will continuously shrink and widen when interacted with cold and hot food respectively, which can break the porcelain crowns)
Avoid food with high stickiness.
