What's the Average Lifespan of Dental Crowns?

If you’ve recently had oral surgery, such as a root canal or dental implant procedure, your dentist will complete the procedure by fitting a dental crown over the natural tooth or the dental implant. Crowns are custom-made from strong, aesthetically pleasing porcelain. They’re durable, but they aren’t expected to last for a lifetime. The lifespan of your new crown depends on your oral care and mouth-related habits.

In general, c can last between five and 15 years. By keeping your teeth and gums clean, and by avoiding excessive wear on your teeth, it should be years before you’ll need a replacement. Some habits that shorten the lifespan of a crown are: Chewing on ice or fingernails, clenching and grinding the teeth, and using your teeth to perform non-food-related tasks, like tearing open packaging.
