How Long Will A Dental Crown Last?

cost of dental crowns North Dallas

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we use dental crowns in many treatments. A crown adds strength to a tooth with a large filling, or has been injured. A crown is usually necessary after a root canal, and is the final step in a dental implant.

Crowns are also used extensively for purely cosmetic problems: yellow teeth, stained teeth, too-small teeth, and teeth that are misshapen.

Dental crowns are fabricated from a variety of materials that vary in appearance and strength:

  1. All ceramic (porcelain-based)
  2. Porcelain fused to metal
  3. Gold alloys
  4. Base metal alloys

We can determine which type is right for you. Factors to consider are the location of the crown in the mouth, and any allergies to metal.

When many Dallas dentists provide a crown restoration, they use a process that requires two office visits. On the first visit, we prepare the tooth and take an impression for the dental lab. Then, we make a temporary crown for the patient to use until the permanent crown is ready.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last? Dental crowns can last for many years, but are not designed to last indefinitely. Even with proper care, dental patients should not expect crowns to be trouble-free for decades.

There is encouraging evidence, however, that points to a high success rate: a 2009 study found that more than 90% of dental crowns will not require treatment within five years of placement. The study also found that 50% to 80% last from 15 to 20 years.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, dental crowns are just one of our restorative dentistry procedures. Call us for an appointment today.
