Dental Crown FAQs
Is a dental crown painful?
The dental crown procedure should not cause you severe pain. You will be completely numbed to ensure you do not feel pain during treatment. Most people report that it feels like they are having a tooth filling completed. After the procedure, your tooth may feel sensitive however this will pass in a few days. If the sensitivity lasts longer than a few weeks, please contact our Towson, MD area dentist office.
Can a dental crown last forever?
Yes, it is possible for your crown to last a lifetime however this exclusively depends on how well you take care of it and your overall oral health. Most crowns will last between ten to thirty years. If the crown is placed well and you are committed to a lifetime of proper oral hygiene, then there is a chance it could last 30 plus years.
What should I do if my dental crown falls out?
Call our office the first chance you get. There is a good chance that it can simply be re-cemented into place. However, if it has been damaged, then a whole new crown will be made. You should also protect the tooth. The underlying tooth structure is now exposed including some sensitive parts. We recommend cleaning the tooth with water and use over the counter dental cement to gently put the crown back. If you know the crown is broke or is lost, you may use dental wax to cover the tooth.
