Q How soon can I drink after getting a dental crown in an hour?
You can drink right away. As soon as you leave the office, the crown is as strong as it is going to get. We use a special light to bond the crown to the tooth. The two nearly become one, so it is very strong. Just be careful of your lip, if it is still numb you may find yourself dribbling some water down the front of your shirt.
