It can really depend on several factors: how much you chew, how tight you clamp your teeth when you sleep, your own personal dental hygiene and the size & location of the dental crown. In general, however, 5 to 15 years. One thing that can almost guarantee longevity is visiting a dentist every 6 months to make sure things are clean and appropriate steps are taken.

With proper care and consultation crowns can last in excess of 25 years!
Can a dental crown be done in one visit?
Yes, crowns can be done in a single appointment if the local dentist has the right equipment and technology. Same day crowns can have the advantage of convenience but can also come at the sacrifice of strength and stability. It is best to consult with your local dental facility for more information or call us at the Dental Community Clinic now to find out more. We are happy to answer any of your questions about same day crowns.
How do you clean under a crown?
Crowns must be brushed and cleaned and the process can be a little different from normal teeth. First, use a soft bristle brush to clean around the teeth and gums. When flossing, try to push particle down and outwards not to get stuck in the crown coming back up. Rinse your mouth with water after every mean and it is crucial that you see your local dentist every 6 months for routine cleanings.
