How long does a dental crown last?
A crown is a restoration that is designed to take the place of your entire tooth. It fits over your remaining tooth structure like a "cap," and is customized to match your compromised tooth in both shape and shade so that it blends in seamlessly with your smile. In fact, it is likely that no one will ever even know you had dental work completed thanks to the high quality of modern dental crowns.
Today's crowns are comprised of high quality porcelain that is both durable and aesthetically pleasing. With excellent home care consisting of routine brushing and flossing and regular checkups with your dentist, your crown can potentially last for 12 to 15 years.
If you are replacing a missing tooth with an implant crown, you can expect to have even better longevity. An implant crown can potentially last a lifetime with the proper care. These crowns are so successful because they closely mimic your natural tooth by also restoring your root.
