How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
All types of dental crowns can be very long-lasting and durable if taken care of properly. (Regularly brushing and flossing is still important!) The strongest dental crown material is gold, but ceramic resin is also quite durable. The way to keep your crowns in good shape is to use common sense and avoid putting unnecessary stress on your teeth. Habits such as ice chewing could potentially weaken your dental crowns, but they can also weaken natural teeth!
How Do I Get Started With Dental Crowns in Downey?
If you think you could benefit from a dental crown in Downey, contact us to schedule an initial consultation. Our dentist will examine your teeth and gums and review your case. Advanced digital X-rays will be taken to see what’s going on inside the teeth and jaw. If we need to treat an issue such as a cavity before installing the crown, we will explain the procedure and what is involved.
When it is time to work on the dental crown, we will first make an impression of your tooth. This will help us create the custom crown. Before the permanent crown is put into place, we will provide a temporary crown.
