How long do dental crowns usually last?

Dental crowns in West Chester, OH are made of quality materials that may include the following:

  • Porcelain
  • Porcelain and Metal
  • Gold

These options allow you and your dentist to choose the crown that will work best for its intended purpose. For example, you may need a crown following root canal treatment or support a damaged tooth. You may also choose a dental crown to conceal tooth flaws. Additionally, they work in tooth replacement—topping a dental implant post or attaching a dental bridge to healthy teeth for support.

How long your dental crown holds up depends on a few factors, but it can last for up to 15 years if you incorporate healthy habits and visit your dentist regularly.

Healthy habits to improve the longevity of your crown include:

  • Brushing and flossing your teeth (and crown) after each meal or twice daily
  • Talking to your dentist if you suspect bruxism (grinding and clenching your teeth at night)
  • Wearing the right mouthguard if you participate in contact athletics
  • Talking to your dentist if you notice changes, including a loosening crown
