Every patient is different when it comes to the life span of their dental work, so it’s difficult to guess exactly how long a dental crown will last. Once our doctors have had the opportunity to examine your teeth, we can usually give you a fairly accurate estimate.
Dental materials and technology have improved dramatically in the last ten years. This makes crowns more durable, but the life of your crown really depends on your own oral hygiene practices and your general dental health. Grinding your teeth and gum disease are just two examples of problems that can affect the life of your crown.
Generally speaking, if your teeth are healthy and you practice good oral hygiene, you can expect your crown to last for about 15 years. If you are particularly conscientious about your overall oral health care, your crowns may last a lifetime.
