Dental Crowns FAQs
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns are durable and can last for several years with proper care and maintenance. However, their lifespan can vary depending on factors such as oral hygiene, eating habits, and general wear and tear. On average, dental crowns can last 10-15 years or longer.
Is it possible to whiten or change the color of a dental crown?
Dental crowns are resistant to teeth whitening treatments, so their color cannot be changed once they are placed. If you’re considering teeth whitening, it’s best to do so before getting a crown to ensure a matching shade.
Can I eat normally with a dental crown?
Yes, dental crowns can withstand normal chewing and biting. However, it’s advisable to avoid extremely hard or sticky foods that could potentially damage the crown.
