How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

If you have a tooth that is severely worn down, cracked, or otherwise weakened, your dentist may recommend having a dental crown placed to reinforce it. We place many dental crowns in Naperville and field many questions from curious patients who want to know more about them. For many patients, the length of time that their crown will last is an important factor. 

Your dental crown can last anywhere from 10-30 years. There are lots of factors contributing to a longer lifespan, including:

  1. Materials used to create the crown. Though many people choose to get porcelain or ceramic crowns because of their more natural appearance, metal crowns tend to last longer. If a long lifespan for your crown is the top priority, your dentist may recommend a metal dental crown.
  2. Practicing good hygiene. Maintaining good dental care habits is one of the best ways to extend the lifespan of your crown. Be sure to brush your teeth twice daily (morning and night), floss once per day, and visit your dentist two times per year for a checkup.
  3. Controlling bad habits. Those who are struggling with clenching or grinding their teeth (bruxism) should work to resolve the problem with their dentist in order to protect their teeth and dental crown. These habits can damage your crown and contribute to an ahead-of-schedule replacement.
