Dental Crown FAQs

Read answers to some of the most common questions patients have about tooth crowns:

How long do dental crowns last?

With the right care, dental crowns can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years. Tooth crowns are long-lasting because they provide strength and durability to teeth. Our dentists also always ensure that patients have healthy teeth and gums before undergoing restorative treatment. Keeping the teeth and gums beneath restorations healthy is key to results that last. Patients can brush and floss between their dental crowns just like natural teeth to keep them clean.

Are dental crowns painful?

Our dental team works with patients one-on-one to create a comfortable and pain-free experience. Before treatment, we will numb the tooth receiving the crown as well as the surrounding gums. After the crown is placed on the tooth, we provide patients with pain medication as they become accustomed to their new restoration.

Can the teeth under dental crowns become infected?

If a dental crown does not fit properly, the teeth that they cover can be affected. Please contact our office if you have an old or ill-fitting crown and we can provide you with a replacement. If a dental crown is loose, bacteria can damage the tooth underneath. A buildup of harmful bacteria can lead to problems like sore gums, bad breath, and irritation around the crown.
