How long will my dental restoration last?

Dental Restorations | Elma NY Dentist Many people share the misconception that dental restorations will last forever. Regardless of how well a restoration is designed, this is rarely the case. The length of time a restoration lasts varies from person to person. It can be related to the types of foods you eat, your personal oral hygiene, frequency of professional dental cleanings, and even your overall health.

It’s important to remember that, just like your natural teeth, dental restorations are subject to wear and tear and can gradually break down over time. A restoration may become loose or broken down, allowing decay to enter the area around the restoration and creating problems like cavities or periodontal disease.

Getting a Durable Restoration

At Springbrook Family Dentistry, when we create your durable restoration, we’ll also take the time to explain how you can protect and keep it functional for as long as possible. Even though you can’t expect your fillings, bridges, and crowns to last forever, you play a huge part in making them last as long as possible. Maintaining great oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly will keep your restorations in great condition for as long as possible.

Please call our Elma dental office if you have questions or would like more information about our durable restorations.

Dear patients, friends and family,

In light of recent events surrounding the Corona Virus/COVID-19 and the guidance of our national and state dental societies, we will be rescheduling all 6 month cleaning appointments and any elective dental treatment over the next few weeks.

We continue to be available for dental emergencies and are accessible via phone and email. We love our patients and are willing to do whatever we can for the sake of community health and well being, especially for those among us that could be most affected by infection.

At this time, we have NO known cases of COVID-19 among our staff. Dental offices are at extreme risk for propagation of the virus due to the large number of aerosols created during dental procedures, as well as the close proximity we are in to our patients. Therefore we will continue to adhering to the highest levels of infection control.

I am confident all of us will be better off if we all do our part to protect the community and "flatten the curve". If you have any questions or are looking for any updates please follow our Facebook page or call us at 716-652-0600.
