What can I do if my dental crown falls off?

If your dental crown falls off or cracks, it’s essential to contact your dentist. Sometimes, we consider this a dental emergency, especially if you notice pain or swelling. If there is no pain, keep the exposed tooth clean until you see the dentist.

If you cannot make it to the dentist right away, clean the crown and exposed tooth. Next, go to the drugstore and purchase temporary cement to keep the crown in place and prevent infection of the exposed tooth.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns in Madison, AL, are custom tooth covers fabricated from impressions. They are shaded and designed to look like your natural teeth. We use a dental crown to protect a damaged or at-risk tooth. We may also use crowns to conceal tooth flaws, top dental implant posts, or connect one or two artificial teeth to healthy teeth.
