Endurance Of Dental Crowns With Composite Resin Material?
Good morning doc. How many years does a composite resin crown last? Thank you
A dental crown is a denture casing that is shaped like a natural tooth and is placed over damaged teeth. Its function is to improve the appearance and protect teeth from more severe damage.
Usually needed in conditions such as:
Damaged or broken teeth, for example due to accidents Protect and support the overall structure of the teeth Hold bridges between teeth or give adjacent teeth when the teeth are between dates Protect the position of dental implants Improve the appearance of broken or deformed teeth
There are various types of artificial dental crowns, including stainless steel, metal, resin, ceramic or porcelain. For durability, which is made of metal is stronger but looks less good so it can be an option for the back teeth. In appearance, the best is porcelain or ceramic, the price is usually more expensive. Materials from resins are usually cheaper than others.
Composite resin material can last up to 10 years or more. Many factors influence it, including age and sex at installation (getting older becomes more susceptible to other dental disorders), operator skills (including technique), material used, and other factors related to the patient such as habits of consuming food and acidic beverages or colored.
