Your Mississauga Choice for Dental Crowns!
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is essentially a helmet for your teeth that ‘caps’ or fully covers a damaged tooth in order to improve its appearance and overall health. Dental crowns are made from different types of material. Early in dentistry, they were made from metals like stainless steel. At Lifestyle Dentistry, we use porcelain crowns because of its strength and cosmetic appeal. Porcelain provides a better colour match than other materials and is also better for those who have metal allergies.
How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
Crowns last between five to fifteen years, depending on your oral health habits and the amount of wear and tear they receive. After we place your dental crown, you will want to stay away from chewing ice and other hard materials, grinding your teeth, biting your fingernails, and opening packages with your teeth. This will help your crown last as long as possible.
