Your dental crown becomes a part of your dentition until it is fixed. It needs the same level of attention as natural teeth, if not more. Clean your dental crown like you would your teeth, and floss around it as well. In reality, since your dental crown is artificial, it can attract more deposits and thus necessitates extra attention.

Dental crowns, when properly cared for, will last for several years and remain in excellent condition.
