Temporary Crown Instructions

You have received a temporary crown today. This crown is designed to protect your underlying tooth structure while the permanent crown is being fabricated in the lab. The type of cement that holds this crown in place is very weak. Therefore, you have to follow the instructions below to prevent the temporary crown from dislodging.

The homecare for the temporary crown:

  • Don’t floss around it, for it will dislodge: however, proper brushing is a must, Don’t eat on it, for it will dislodge. You can eat on the other side of your mouth.
  • No chewing gum, hard candy, or sticky food consumption at all until you receive your permanent crown
  • If the temporary crown falls off, please place it in a clean Zip-lock bag, call us immediately, and return for recementation.


Call us today to schedule a consultation, so you have
 your best options in front of you.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
