All You Need to Know About Dental Crowns | Dentist Kallangur
Dental crowns are a dental tool to restore and cover damaged teeth while matching the look of your natural teeth.
Crowns can be helpful in many situations including:
- Protecting a decayed tooth
- Replacing a filling
- Rebuilding broken teeth
- Holding dental bridges in place
- Capping off a dental implant.
Crowns can help you avoid other dental procedures. Crowns over large cavities may prevent the need for root canals. Crowns can also protect weak teeth and prevent the need for extraction. Crowns are custom built to match your smile, so they look just like your natural teeth and ‘give you back’ your beautiful smile.
Crowns also feel and perform like your natural teeth. Because they are permanent, crowns don’t move around or fall out, as dentures sometimes do. Crowns usually last from 10 – 15 years, and many dental insurances covers their replacement after 5 years.

“The up to 25-Year Survival and Clinical Performance of 2,340 High Gold-Based Metal-Ceramic Single Crowns”

At 25 years, the success rate was 85%.
That’s 1,989 out of 2,340 crowns that lasted over 25 years.
