Long Term Care of Ceramic Dental Crowns Atlanta, GA
Smiling Couple With Beautiful Teeth

Porcelain and ceramic dental crowns serve a dual purpose: they protect your damaged tooth while also enhancing the overall appearance of your smile. Although ceramic is extremely durable, it’s not “invincible”. You’ll still need to give your new crowns a bit of extra TLC to help them last as long as possible.

Avoid Abrasives
Whether it’s the occasional baking soda or a gritty-textured toothpaste, micro-abrasives can — over time — start to scratch the surfaces of your dental crowns or other restorations (including tooth enamel.) In time, all of those tiny scratches can accumulate stains and make your crown look discolored.

Pay Attention to the Margins
You’ll want to carefully clean around the edges of your crown, just next to your gums, at least twice a day. But extremely gently! By keeping that area as clean as possible, you’ll limit tartar buildup or new decay around your crown. Also, it will keep the gums healthier so that the gumlines stay up higher on the tooth and don’t start to recede. Just be warned, brushing too aggressively can cause gum recession too.

Wear a Nightguard if You Clench and Grind Your Teeth
Excessive clenching and grinding (bruxism) can cause the porcelain on your dental crown to flake off, fracture, or give out altogether. Wearing a protective nightguard will save your entire smile, as well as your dental work.

Use Floss or a Water Flosser
Depending on your preferences and what works best, clean around your new crown once a day with traditional floss or a water flosser.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

James R.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
