How long so crowns on teeth last for?

Postby Ice.Maiden » 20 Oct 2014, 18:32

I'm just wondering because I had one put on last week.

Someone I know said he had 2 done 26 years ago, and they're still good to go! :shock:

And of course, I meant how long DO they last for. :oops:

The reason I asked, is because someone else said that the average time's about 10 years. That doesn't seem very long for the cost of them! :bleh:

Oh - thank you. Looks like they're made to last for a good many years then, but it depends on oral hygiene, how well the crown's been applied and how the patient takes care of them when biting down on them. Right - I'll be forever careful!!
