My 68 yr. old teeth are causing increasing problems requiring costly repairs - several crowns, implant, etc. I am wondering about the advisability of capping all uncapped teeth in an effort to prevent future major problems.

  • You can get dental crowns or dental bridges for all your teeth which are uncapped. Get dental crown or dental bridge after root canal treatment in teeth to avoid any problem in teeth in future.  With age, attrition and tooth wear occurs so dental crown can be given on them. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly to have healthy teeth and gums. You can get porcelain or porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or metallic dental crown or bridges for your uncapped teeth. You can get porcelain or porcelain fused to metal dental crowns (PFM) for front teeth and you can get metallic or porcelain fused to metal dental crowns for back teeth.  Lifespan of dental crowns with good oral hygiene maintenance is 10-15 years and are successful treatment option. You can discuss with your dentist about option of getting dental crowns for uncapped teeth.
