No Sticky Foods: No sticky foods like taffy, jujubes, abba zabba that could stick to the crown and it's opposing tooth and pull the new crown off. The crown cement needs to set.

Dental crowns: Follow a good oral hygiene at home. It should include adequate brushing and flossing. See your dentist on a regular basis for check up and "cleaning". Keep the plaque off your teeth. It's best to be proactive.
