How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains the longevity you can expect from dental crowns with proper home care.

Dental crowns have an impressive lifespan, often lasting indefinitely because they are not susceptible to cavities. Unlike natural teeth, dental crowns do not develop cavities or gum disease. However, it’s essential to note that the underlying tooth structure can still be vulnerable to these issues. Therefore, maintaining good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing, flossing, and using a water pick, is crucial for removing harmful bacteria. Cavities and gum disease are primarily caused by bacterial buildup, making regular oral hygiene a critical preventive measure.

Additionally, visiting the dental office every three to six months is essential. During these appointments, we can thoroughly clean areas that may be missed in your daily routine. Furthermore, we can apply fluoride to your teeth to enhance their strength, promote remineralization, and make them exceptionally resistant to cavities. By following these practices, you can prolong the lifespan of your dental crowns and reduce the likelihood of needing replacements. Your oral health is our priority, and we are here to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
