Crowns & Bridges

At Workman Family Dental, we use only the highest quality materials to ensure that the restoration we create for you will last for many years. All dental restorations are man-made, however, so it's inevitable that they will have a certain lifespan.

There are several things you need to take into account when considering the lifespan of a restoration. The size of the restoration and the tooth on which it is placed both play a part in how long a particular restoration will last.

However, the most important factor will be how well you take care of your teeth. We can create a beautiful, durable restoration, but it is up to you to take care of it properly. Even the highest quality restoration can’t stand up to abuse and neglect. Failure to brush and floss properly or frequently biting down on hard candies will definitely shorten the lifespan of your restoration. In a perfect world, with proper care and routine dental visits, a crown or bridge will last up to 10 years (and maybe longer).

If you have are considering having a crown or bridge placed and would like more information, please call our Columbia dental office. We will be happy to arrange an appointment to discuss all your options.
