Same Day Crowns

The post-procedure care instructions for a crown are about the same as for a filling or root canal, with one exception — it is normal for the gums around the tooth to remain sore for several days while healing from the procedure and the placement of a same day crown.


Following dental anesthesia, the lips, gums and cheeks can remain numb for up to two hours. Avoid eating or biting your lips or cheeks until the anesthesia wears off to prevent injury to the areas.

Sensitivity and Soreness

Following a same day crown, tooth soreness and sensitivity can remain for several hours or days. The gums surrounding the tooth can also remain sore for several days while healing from the work that was done. Over-the-counter pain medications can be taken as directed, if necessary. If soreness and/or sensitivity persists or increases, contact the office to set up an appointment. Sometimes, a minor adjustment or further treatment may be necessary.


Following a same day crown, you may resume your regular diet but avoid very hot or very cold food and beverages while pain and sensitivity persist. Extreme temperatures can bother already-sensitive teeth. You should also avoid sticky or crunchy foods for the first 24 hours to ensure that the crown is fully bonded.

Dental Care

Following a same day crown, you can immediately resume your regular home care routine, brushing and flossing as usual. Maintain your regular cleaning schedule with your dentist to promote good oral health and to catch any future issues in a timely manner.
