What Are the Signs I Need to Make an Appointment After Receiving My Crown?

Will My Porcelain Crown Feel Natural?

Patients usually acclimate to their new crown within a couple of days to a week. If your porcelain crown still does not feel right, you should contact Dentists of Whittier to make an appointment.
Can I Eat Normally with My New Porcelain Crown?
