How often should dental crowns be replaced?

Our dental crowns in Champaign, IL are made from high-quality porcelain. They are durable and able to stand up to practical use—normal chewing, for example.

As far as longevity, there is no hard or fast rule for when you’ll need dental crown replacement. In some cases, a crown can last a decade or more without incident. Other times, the patient might damage the crown by biting on ice chips or using their capped tooth for purposes other than eating—twisting off a cap, for example. Unfortunately, these same practices can also damage your teeth!

If you notice your crown loosening or if it cracks or dislodges from your tooth, it is essential to contact your Champaign, IL dentist as soon as possible. In many cases, we can repair or reset your tooth crown.

We recommend visiting your dentist twice yearly for exams and teeth cleanings, and brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice daily for dental crown longevity.

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over prepared teeth. They provide protection to damaged teeth, conceal flawed teeth, and anchor bridged teeth. Crowns also cap dental implant posts.
