Dental Crowns FAQs
Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about dental crowns below:
What do dental crowns treat?
Dental crowns can fix teeth that are damaged, chipped, cracked, misshapen, or discolored. They can also be used to cover dental implants, strengthen anchor teeth in a dental bridge, or reinforce teeth with a root canal.
How long do dental crowns last?
With proper dental care, dental crowns can last patients for up to 15 years. You should avoid sticky or chewy foods that can pull at the crown. You should also avoid tough foods to ensure that the crown remains in place.
What are dental crowns made out of?
Dental crowns can be made of porcelain or metal material. Dr. Weinstock may use porcelain-on-metal crowns for back teeth or all-ceramic crowns for front teeth. Porcelain dental crowns blend in with teeth for a natural look. Metal crowns can provide a sturdy and stable restoration.
Can you get a cavity under a dental crown?
Although dental crowns are used to protect teeth from wear and tear and to improve their appearance, they can’t save teeth from tooth decay. The area of the remaining tooth may be prone to cavities, so it is important to still brush and floss twice a day. You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Weinstock for a tooth cleaning or a comprehensive assessment if you think you have tooth decay. In the event of a cavity, Dr. Weinstock will have to remove the crown and provide treatment to the remaining tooth structure.
