You might feel like you’ve achieved quite the rare feat! You have a dental crown that has lasted and lasted and, rather than coming for a metal-free replacement crown, you have persevered. While we can certainly admire your dedication and the fact that you probably have quite a threshold for discomfort, we have some advice that runs counter to your beliefs about restorations: You should replace problematic crowns ASAP when they are no longer in excellent condition or they’re not serving you well. Let’s explore this idea!
If They’re Metal
First, as you know, we practice metal-free dentistry. As a result, if you wake up one day and decide for any reason that you don’t want a metal crown in your smile, we will absolutely understand. Rather than suffering with any potential ill effects of the metal restoration (or simply dealing with the esthetic problems it causes), let us know you would like a new crown. We provide crown replacements, so you can feel secure about your dental work.
If They’re Damaged
If you have a damaged dental crown, the time to come in for a replacement crown is immediately! You don’t want to wait when it’s something that affects your bite balance. Even if your crown is slightly damaged, it’s worth seeing us to find out if you can use yours for a bit longer or if you require a new one. Problems with balance can yield issues like bruxism or TMJ issues that will require additional care! No need to let one little issue snowball into several. Set up a visit soon.
