Can Dental Crowns Get Damaged?

0429

Because dental crowns are used to protect damaged teeth, it can be easy to have the mistaken perception that these appliances will last forever. While certainly strong and very durable, crowns can be damaged or they may need to be replaced over time.

Dental crowns are often referred to as caps. They serve to protect your natural teeth from further damage while giving you the look and function of real teeth. Meant to last for anywhere from 5 to 15 years with proper care, injury or normal wear and tear can cause damage or dislodging of your crown.

Dental crown emergencies can occur when the dislodged or cracked crown interferes with your ability to function normally or results in extensive pain. If too much of the pulp of your tooth is left exposed, this might create an immediate need for treatment to prevent further damage to your affected tooth.

If you have no real struggles, you may be able to wait until you can see your normal dentist. When you just can’t wait, selecting from the available Los Angeles emergency dentists means finding a professional who has extensive experience in handling emergencies situations with dental crowns.
