How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

When you invest in your oral health, you want assurances that the treatment will have long-ranging benefits. Some dental crowns will be more durable than others, and these restorations have been known to last anywhere from two years to a lifetime. The reasons for this vary. Your lifestyle and hygiene habits are important factors. Furthermore, the quality of the restoration material and the dental work play an essential role in the crown’s longevity.

With her years of experience placing crowns, Dr. Marianna Farber believes knowledge is the foundation for exceptional results. During your appointment, she will detail the ways in which you can actively protect your restoration for long-lasting function and beauty.

Choose the Right Dentist The process of ensuring you receive the highest-quality restoration begins with your choice of dentist. An experienced dental professional like Dr. Farber utilizes state-of-the-art dental techniques, technology, and materials and combines them with procedural expertise to achieve an optimal outcome. She will reduce the natural dentition as minimally as possible to retain the strength of the original structure, and she will have one of the best labs in the nation, the Jason J. Kim Oral Design New York Center, fabricate your customized dental crown. As a result, you can leave our office confident in the craftsmanship of your restoration.

Take Care of Your Crown The quality of the dental work and the quality of your hygiene habits are two halves of the same coin that can determine your crown’s durability. Regular brushing and flossing are keys to maintaining excellent oral health. Other concerns that can affect your crown’s longevity include whether you clench or grind your teeth, or if you use your teeth for risky behavior such as opening bottles. During your appointment, Dr. Farber can further explain some of the practices you should try to avoid to protect the condition of your crown. Dental crowns that last decades are possible with the right care and treatment.
