Frequently Asked Questions?

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown, a tooth-shaped “cap”, is used to cover a tooth. It is meant to protect the tooth from further damage, increase its strength and enhance appearance. When cemented in place, crowns completely encase all visible portions of a tooth above and below the gum line. They are typically made from either ceramic, porcelain, stainless steel, or an alloy (including gold).

How long can dental crowns last before they wear out?

Dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years. The lifespan of a dental crown depends on how much “wear and tear” the crown is exposed to and how well you maintain good oral hygiene habits. You should also avoid habits like grinding or clenching teeth, biting your nails, chewing ice, chewing gum, and so on with your teeth in order to increase the lifespan of your crowns.

Is it necessary to take special care of a crown tooth?

Although a crown does not need to be taken extra care of, a crowned tooth does not protect the underlying tooth from decay or gum diseases. Therefore, keep up good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice daily and flossing once per day, especially around the crown where the gum meets the teeth.

Make sure to come in for your regular dental check-ups twice a year. If there is a need to treat the tooth inside the crown, the dentist can just drill through it and fill it in when the work is done. You really don’t need to worry about doing anything special for your crown.

Why are dental crowns recommended by dentists?

If you have a cracked, broken, uneven, or weakened tooth due to extreme bacteria or decay, then our dentist in Fall River recommends dental crowns.
