How Can You Keep Your Dental Crowns Longer?Dental crowns are a great way to fix cracked, or broken teeth. They are not always the cheapest option, but they are something that many people turn to. One of the problems with dental crowns is they are not a permanent solution.

Crowns can last for a few years or they can last for decades. Most would prefer to get them to last as long as possible If that is what they want, they need to know how to make dental crowns last.

Good Habits Work

When it comes to making dental crowns last, many of the tips are the same as for making your real teeth last. It is important to keep up good dental hygiene habits. This means brushing the teeth and crowns twice a day with a soft toothbrush. It means flossing every day to remove the debris that gets in between the teeth and gums.

The health of all the teeth and gums will impact the crowns. Making sure that you take care of overall dental hygiene can help make crowns last longer. That also means regular visits to see our dental professionals for regular cleaning and checkups.

The Crowns Matter

While practicing good oral hygiene matters, the types of crowns also make a difference. A crown can last from 5 years to 20 years, depending on the type of crown and the care the teeth receive. Crowns made of metal will last longer, but they are best suited for the back teeth because of the appearance of the metal. Porcelain crowns look better, but they are also more likely to break or chip.

The work of the dental professional putting the crowns in place plays a role in how long they last.
Crowns serve a very useful purpose for many people. They do not come cheap. To get the most out of the crowns it is important to know how to take care of them, so they last as long as possible.
