Do I Need to Avoid Certain Foods with My Dental Crown?

You need to use common sense, however, and avoid biting down directly on foods like hard candy or nuts. A broken crown not only requires replacement, but you may also damage underlying healthy tooth structure.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
