Every six months, you visit your dentist for a checkup and hear that same familiar question: “Have you been flossing?”  For a lot of patients, the answer isn’t always a confident yes.

Has your dentist told you that you’ll need a dental crown? Or did you recently have one placed? According to the American College of Prosthodontists, dental crowns are the single most common restorative dental procedure, and it’s easy to see why. From cracks and chips to severe decay and damage, these strong, tooth-shaped caps can repair a tooth and save it from extraction. They cover up cosmetic imperfections, rebuild damaged structure, and protect teeth from future dental complications. With no special care aside from good brushing and flossing habits, dental crowns last an average of 10 years. However, in some cases they can last up to 25 years! So how can you make the most of your dental crowns in Montgomeryville for years to come?
