Hi doctor,

I am 24 years old. I had my tooth crowned before nine years. I have no problem with it, but a dentist wants me to get a crown replacement. I do not even feel any discomfort. Is it necessary to replace?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Most crowns can last up to 15 years depending on the type of material used for making crown.
  • Sometimes, crown replacement is neccessary when there is excessive wear or fracture in crown or there are complications due to tooth decay.
  • So, if that is the reason why that dentist suggested you crown replacement then it is neccessary.
  • Otherwise, if the crown is fine and it is kept plaque free then no need to replace it.
