Could Your Crown Need to Be Updated?
Dental Restorations Are Long-lasting, but Not Forever
Restorative dental treatment is designed to protect teeth against further discomfort, which can result from the interior of the tooth becoming exposed to food and bacteria. Crowns are a popular way of restoring damaged teeth. That is because they can effectively seal teeth, while offering cosmetic benefits, as well, at least when a seamless option like a porcelain crown is selected.
Dental-grade porcelain crowns can be customized to create a natural-looking restoration. Yet it is durable enough to last for many years, with proper care.
Enjoy Improved Comfort and Confidence with a Modern Restoration
That said, after a decade or more of wear, your dental crown is likely to need to be updated. So be prepared to talk to your dentist about updating any existing crown that is more than five to ten years old, particularly if you are experiencing any discomfort or pain. If you can see signs of wear or damage to your crown, it is also likely that you will need a new crown.
