What is the Cost of Dental or Porcelain Crowns?
The cost of a dental crown may vary according to the type of crown that you choose. Determining factors may include the skill of the dentist, the quality of the crown, and the materials used to make the crown. Consult our Uptown Dallas dentist team to get an estimated cost for having a tooth crowned.
Caring for Your Dental Crown
Crowns and bridges generally last 2-20 years but can last a lifetime but this entirely depends on your specific dental condition and genetics. For example, if you a “heavy grinder or clencher” or just not really diligent with your home dental care, you will need to replace a crown more often. Oral hygiene is extremely important for new crowns and bridges. If the teeth holding the bridge are weakened by lack of care and/or disease, the crown/bridge itself will not remain supported. Keep your teeth and gums healthy by using effective fluoride toothpaste regularly, and floss on a daily basis. Avoid chewing hard or sticky foods when you are wearing a new crown or bridge as it affects the integrity and strength of the foundation. More importantly, maintain your professionally recommended preventative care such as cleanings and XRays to prevent and hopefully catch any potential issues that may occur. Book my appointment
