How long do dental crowns last?
Crowns typically last 15 years but with proper care, they can last longer than 25 years. It’s important to schedule biannual exams and cleanings in addition to following a regular oral hygiene routine to increase the longevity of your crown.
Choosing a trusted dentist such as Dr. Snider will also ensure that your procedure is completed to the highest standards.

We also offer flexible financing options so you don’t have to put your health on hold.
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
Prior to getting a crown, your dentist will apply a local anesthetic which will keep you pain-free throughout the procedure. Following the procedure, you may experience minimal discomfort which can be addressed with over-the-counter pain relievers or a cold compress.
How do CEREC same-day dental crowns work?
Prior to getting a crown, your dentist will apply a local anesthetic to keep you pain-free throughout the procedure. The decay will be removed and the tooth will be shaped to allow room for the crown to be placed on top of it.
Next, images will be taken and a 3D model of your teeth will be made. Finally, using CEREC technology, a crown will be sculpted and Dr. Snider will place it over your tooth.
What’s the difference between a crown and a filling?
Both a crown and a filling are solutions to address and prevent further tooth decay. A filling is used when a cavity exists. First, your dentist will apply a local anesthetic, remove the decayed part of the tooth, and replace it with a filling. Then, your tooth will be buffed to soften the contour.
A crown is used to cover the entire tooth above the gum line and is used to solve a variety of dental issues. When the tooth has severe decay and a filling will no longer address the problem, a crown is needed. A crown can also cover a tooth that is misshaped, discolored, chipped, or broken.
How can I avoid getting a dental crown?
The best course of action is always prevention. Visiting our office for regular exams and checkups, in addition to regular brushing and flossing, will ensure your dental health stays on track. Issues that arise can also be dealt with immediately before they become problematic.
