Do dental crowns need to be replaced?

Dental crowns can last for more than a decade and sometimes much longer. However, you may need to replace your dental crown in the future if it breaks, loosens, or becomes damaged.

When fabricating dental crowns in Seymour, TN, Seymour Dental Associates rely on trusted labs that share our patient-focused philosophies. For you, that means quality materials and attention to detail.

How Dental Crowns Save Smiles

A dental crown is a cover cemented over a prepared tooth. We fabricate this cover to look like your untreated teeth in shape and color. After your dentist places it, the crown creates a safe space between your chewing force and the treated tooth beneath.

These restorations preserve and save smiles in more ways than one.

  • Capping a weak, damaged, or root canal-treated tooth to prevent further complications
  • Concealing general tooth flaws like shape issues, chips, discoloration, and more
  • Topping a tooth root replacement and acting as your new tooth in dental implant treatment
  • Connect prosthetic bridge teeth to healthy adjacent teeth

Increasing the Lifespan of Your Dental Crown

Practical tips and good habits may preserve and protect your dental crown for many years. First, we recommend brushing and flossing at least twice per day. It would be best if you also visited your dentist for checkups and teeth cleanings every six months. Finally, you should avoid chewing on hard or sticky things like ice or taffy with your crowned tooth.

Contact your dentist in Seymour, TN, if you have questions or want to arrange a dental crown consultation.
