The Lifespan of Dental Crowns

The Lifespan of Dental Crowns

When we at Innovative Dental talk to patients who need dental crowns, they almost always ask one question, “How long will my crown last????   The answer is that dental crowns can last rather varied periods of time. In some cases they have lasted for several decades, but with poor care have been known to last just a few years. The lifespan of a dental crown is often dependent on you and the quality of crown you are given.

While no exact prediction can be made for how long a particular crown will last, Innovative Dental takes pride in being able to provide crowns that are able to last as long as possible, and we always strives to deliver nothing but the highest quality crowns for residents of Moonee Ponds and surrounds.

Because good information, good dentistry, and good aftercare are necessary to optimize crown life, we offer the following information and advice on keeping your crowns around for a very long time!
