How long do dental restorations last?

A misleading perception in dentistry is that once a tooth has been treated and a cavity has been removed, a new filling or crown will last forever. While we wish this were true, the reality is that unfortunately, dental materials do not last forever and will need to be replaced at some point.

In fact, it is important to be proactive about replacing old restorations that are beginning to break down because new bacteria can penetrate the tooth and cause a secondary cavity. If this happens, your restoration will need to be replaced in order to avoid further damage or an infection in your tooth.

Dental restorations last longer when the patient is diligent with home care and brushes at least twice per day, and flosses at least once. You can also protect your investment by visiting the office for regular cleanings and checkups at an interval based on your needs and determined by the dentist and hygienist.

At Tryon Family Dentistry, we use the highest quality dental materials to ensure the longevity and durability of your dental crown, filling, or veneer. This combined with your excellent home care will ensure that your restorations last for as many years possible.
