Are there any risks on getting dental crowns?

People who are looking for dental crowns wonder if there’s any risk on getting them. Any restoration for your mouth carries a previous history of decomposition, fracture, trauma, poor oral hygiene, genetic or hereditary conditions, reduction of bones, retracted gums, etc., and of course this will translate in a certain success rate in your dental treatment. Remember that when preparing teeth for crowns we will work with what is present in your mouth. Previous dental problems that could affect treatment success include decay, infection, bone recession, broken or chipped teeth, broken roots, crossbites, missing teeth, partial teeth, old prosthetics, trauma, previous or current disease, old teeth, TMJ problems , receding gums, periodontal problems, etc. Keep in mind that your body will undergo changes and adjustments to your bite if you had uneven sized teeth or missing teeth for a long time.


Oral hygiene should be a priority! You should pay special attention to the use of dental floss, brush, mouthwash, waterpick daily, otherwise you may have the same problems as before your treatment. Even though you have porcelain teeth and porcelain doesn’t decay like real teeth, the plaque buildup will still affect your gums.  If you do not closely supervise your oral hygiene, you may develop an infection, receding gums, abscessed teeth, etc. In the future, it is possible that your new  dental crowns might need to be changed, modified or readjusted, depending on your own oral condition. You should visit your dentist at home every 6 months for check ups!
