Dental Crown FAQs

Are dental crowns painful?

No, dental crowns are not painful. When dental crowns are placed, anesthetic is used to numb the area. You should not feel any excessive pain during this procedure or after the procedure.

How long do dental crowns last?

Dental crowns typically last 15 years. However, if maintained properly, dental crowns can last up to 30 years.

Am I a candidate for dental crowns?

If you suffer from bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, you should get treatment before having dental crowns inserted. Constant pressure on dental crowns can cause damage.
