There are various factors that determine how long a crown may last for you including where the crown is placed in your mouth. Some tooth crowns will last a lifetime while others may crack and need to be restored at some point. The main factor in determining the life of a crown is patient home care. At Great Boca Smiles in Boca Raton, FL, we take the time to teach our patients to properly care for their teeth. Regular brushing, flossing and water pick use as well as regular hygiene visits are necessary to maintain natural and restored teeth.
The simple answer is tooth crowns can be applied to various shapes and sizes of teeth, as well as those that have fallen out entirely. If you have a limited amount of your natural tooth left composite resin can be added in layers to build a base for the crown because of its capacity to bond with enamel tooth structure. Composite resin is not robust enough to recreate your entire tooth, but it functions well to create a stable base called a build up. A dental diode laser can be used to gently remove gingival (gum) tissues around a tooth to make it longer. This process is called a gingivectomy.
