How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?
It’s not uncommon for dental crowns to last over a decade with good oral hygiene habits. To help your dental crown stay strong and beautiful is to:
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Floss and use mouthwash every day
- Don’t bite down on hard items or foods, such as ice
- Don’t use tobacco
- Visit the dentist every six months for routine exams and cleanings
Does the Dental Crown Treatment Hurt?
At Mayfaire Family Dentistry, your comfort is always our top priority. With this in mind, we are careful to provide the best in quality care to each of our patients to ensure that their restorative dental treatments are always as relaxing and painless as possible.

What is the Cost of a Same Day Dental Crown?
Same day crowns cost about as much as a traditional crown. The cost varies due to different materials that may be necessary and how much the damaged tooth needs to be reshaped. We will always explain the costs to you beforehand.
Some dental insurance plans cover part or all of the costs of a one day crown. Contact your dental insurance company to learn more about your specific benefits.
