How long do crowns last?
Dental crowns are an excellent replacement for a tooth that has been compromised by trauma, decay, or an infection. Crowns are made of high quality porcelain, which is very durable and can potentially last for 10 to 15 years with excellent home care and regular checkups.
They are also designed to provide the function you are used to with your natural tooth. This means that you will be eating, chewing, and smiling with ease with your new tooth. You will also be able to brush and floss your crown as you were used to doing before.
Getting a crown used to be quite a process involving at least two long appointments and weeks of waiting for the final restoration to be completed. With innovative CEREC technology, Dr. Gentry is now able to complete the entire crown procedure in only one appointment at our office.
CEREC allows us to design, customize, and mill your crown with high quality porcelain while you wait. You will enjoy an aesthetically appealing restoration and the same function you had when you leave our office.
