It is possible for a dental crown to loosen and even dislodge from the tooth, but most patients enjoy a functional, effective dental crown for many years, without complications. If a dental crown does fall off of the tooth, it may happen because of a failure of the dental bonding cement or because of an improper placement. In some cases, a dental crown can be dislodged or broken because of a sports injury or other trauma to your mouth.
Porcelain dental crowns are durable and provide a natural looking way to restore a damaged tooth. These crowns do not stand out in your smile and are matched to the color of your teeth. There are several problems dental crowns fix and they are commonly used:
- To restore a broken tooth
- To protect a tooth damaged by decay
- To restore a severely worn tooth
- As part of a dental bridge
- As part of a dental implant
If you do have a dental crown that loosens or fall outs, you should contact our dentists right away. We will schedule an appointment and determine the best way to repair the dental crown. In some cases, it may be necessary to replace the crown.
