How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

Dental crowns work to restore and support a damaged tooth, conceal tooth flaws, top a dental implant, and anchor a dental bridge. It is a hollow cap that covers your tooth, and it is designed to match your neighboring teeth.

Dental Crowns & Bridges in Bellevue, NE

Diagram of dental bridge replacing teeth at Bellevue NE dentist officeOur porcelain dental crowns in Bellevue, NE are made of top-quality materials, and they can last for a decade or longer, depending on upkeep and care.

A dental bridge—restoring teeth anchored with dental crowns—can last for a decade or more as well. Often, the longevity of your restorations and prosthetics is dependent on care.

Caring for your dental crown means brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice every day—more if you have a dental condition. It’s also important to visit your dentist twice every year for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.

A dental bridge in Bellevue, NE requires a lot of the same maintenance, but your dentist will also recommend a floss threader and small cleaning brush to keep the bridge free from bacteria, especially at the gum line.

With restorations and prosthetics, it is often gum disease or infections that promote failure. You’ll also want to avoid using your bridge or crowns for purposes other than eating. Don’t twist off caps with your mouth, for example.
