If you have a broken, fractured, or a completely cracked tooth then a dental crown might be right for you! Dental crowns are normally placed over a tooth that’s been severely compromised and are designed to be durable and long-lasting. In fact, this restorative treatment can be used to even mimic the look of real teeth! Crowns are also custom-made for each patient, so you can be confident knowing that our dentists in Kyle have the experience in crafting your restoration to blend in as naturally as possible.
How Are Dental Crowns Made?
Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials and can be crafted either in an office or at a local laboratory. Regardless of the material used, our Kyle dentists will ensure that your crown matches your existing dentition. This allows us to ensure that they look as natural as possible! Both Dr. Jeffrey Colin and Dr. Alexander Ferdkoff will do everything to ensure that your crown procedure is conducted quickly, painlessly and without difficulty. More importantly, they will ensure that your restorative option is durable to withstand any issues following treatment.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Typically Last?
While dental crowns can vary in their durability (usually based on the materials that are used during their creation), most patients who receive dental crowns from our dental office in Kyle TX can expect for their dental restoration to last anywhere from 10 to 30 years!
In fact, it can be common for us to treat patients who have crowns which are not only in great shape but are decades old! However, it is important to note that teeth underneath dental crowns can sometimes suffer decay or become loose, which can interfere with the structural integrity of a crown. Because of this, it is important that you remain committed for regular checkups at our office so that our team can examine your crown and determine if you need to replace it.
