How to Care for Your Dental Crown
With proper care, a dental crown can last up to 15 years. Thankfully, tooth crowns are easy to take care of by following basic oral hygiene practices. Keeping your mouth clean by brushing and flossing twice a day protects the crown and the tooth underneath from decay and gum disease.
Other habits that can impact the lifespan of a crown include grinding or clenching teeth, biting down on hard surfaces, biting your fingernails, or using your teeth as tools to open packages or loosen bottle caps.
