How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

You paid for your crown – so the crown should last and last, right? In fact, this is the number one question that patients and perspective patients ask us about crowns, “How long will they last?”

The good news is that crowns are a long-term dental treatment, and while they may not last forever, there are things a patient (and dentist) can do to help keep them a very long time.

At Alex Bratic Dental Care we are dedicated to helping you get the crown that is just right for you and also help you keep it for a very long time. Properly looked after, crowns have been known to last for decades.


All About Dental Crowns and Why You Need Them

A dental crown, commonly called a “cap,” is a tooth-shaped restoration that is made by a machine usually in a dental laboratory. It is designed to cover the entire tooth and strengthen or repair a tooth.

Your dentist may recommend a crown to:

  • Cover a discoloured or misshapen tooth
  • Keep a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth to usefulness
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
