How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns in Phoenix, AZ, are made of quality materials for a long-lasting restoration. We also meticulously place your crown for optimal comfort and function.

A well-cared-for dental crown can last for 15 years or longer. In some cases, they have lasted for decades and even for life.

The key to tooth crown longevity is brushing and flossing regularly and visiting your dentist for checkups and teeth cleanings. Additionally, you should avoid biting into hard things like ice or chewy foods like taffy with your dental crown. And always talk to your dentist if you suspect bruxism (nocturnal grinding and clenching).

If you need a dental crown, it may be that you’ve had a root canal, and the tooth needs stability. Other reasons your dentist recommends a tooth crown include tooth trauma. Some patients choose a dental crown to conceal a tooth flaw or discoloration. Tooth crowns also work to support dental implants—capping the artificial root—and anchor a dental bridge to supporting teeth.

A dental crown is a tooth cap-shaped and shaded to match your teeth.
