How often should I replace my dental crowns?

At Ayar Dental, Dr Robert Ayar strives to create dental restorations that looks beautiful, feels great and lasts a long time. Like our natural teeth, treatments such as dental crowns, have a tough job to do. As a result, dentistry may not last forever.

The good news is that you only need to replace your dentistry when it breaks, fails, or you have additional dental work that impacts your current dentistry.

Here are a few ways to improve the longevity of your dental crowns, tooth-coloured fillings, veneers and bonding. These are also good rules of thumb for your natural teeth.

Wear a Nightguard

If you have a teeth-grinding habit, wearing a nightguard will keep you from breaking or wearing down your dentistry and your natural teeth.

Don’t Bite Hard Objects

When eating foods like cherries and olives, cautiously bite into them, even if they say they are pitted. Small fruit stones can still exist because pitting is not an exact process.

It’s also wise to avoid using teeth as tools to open packages or bottles. Even though crunching ice is attempting habit, it can ruin your teeth and your dental crown.

Brush and Floss Religiously

Missing even one day of brushing and flossing can open a window for plaque to harden into tartar, a harbour for bacteria.
