According to the dentists of AKJ Dental Hospital, it depends.


Whether all-ceramic crown can last forever depends on the treatment outcome. If the patient's tooth root is in good condition, the periodontal tissue is healthy, and there is no looseness, swelling and leakiness in the edges of the crown, then it can last for a long time. In addition, dedicated care, good cooperation between the doctor and the patient can prolong its lifespan.

For example, patient with all-ceramic crown should avoid biting down on hard foods or using teeth to open the package. You see, the natural teeth could be damaged in that way, not to mention all-ceramic crown.
