If your tooth has been cracked, chipped, or was otherwise damaged, a dental crown could be a great option for you to restore the shape, size, and strength of your tooth. Dental crowns are a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over your tooth, and there are many different types of crowns including porcelain and metal crowns.


Dental Crowns Q & A

Why Do People Usually Get Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns can also be placed over weak teeth to cover a dental implant or to hold a dental bridge in place. We will exam your tooth/teeth and see if a dental crown is the best option for you. There are also temporary and permanent crowns and, based on your needs, we will decide which option will work for you.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
Dental crowns can last from 5 to 15 years. The life span of the crown is determined on a few things. First, how much wear and tear the crown is exposed to and, secondly, if you follow good oral hygiene practices. Lastly, the lifespan of a dental crown can depend on how much you grind or clench your teeth, bite fingernails, and more. Make an appointment with us to see if a dental crown is the best option for you.
