How often should dental crowns be replaced?

Dental crowns can last for many years—even decades—with proper care. And your dentist in Bellevue, NE always checks the integrity of your tooth crowns when you come for your six-month checkup.

Tips for helping expand the life of your tooth crown include:

  • Excellent oral hygiene
  • Regular dental checkups
  • Regular teeth cleanings

It’s also important to contact our dentist office right away if your crown becomes loose or damaged. In some cases, your dentist can reset your crown or even repair it. Other times, you’ll need to be fitted with a new restoration.

If you grind and clench your teeth during sleep (bruxism)—or if you suspect you might—it’s crucial to contact our dental office for a consultation. Bruxism can damage your crowns and even lead to tooth loss and fractures.

Finally, you should never rely on your crowns (or your teeth) to twist open caps, open bottles, or in capacities other than eating and smiling.
