Lost or Broken Dental Crown

If you notice that you have a lost or broken dental crown, call your dentist at Woodstock Smiles to have the issue fixed. It’s important to call immediately to get an appointment as quickly as possible.

There are a few vital things to know about emergency services and dental crowns. If your dental crown falls off, but you’re not experiencing sharp and jagged edges, then this isn’t an emergency. But if there are pointy areas where you can cut your tongue or cheek, you need immediate attention. Either way, call Woodstock Smiles to receive the proper care.

Don’t panic if you have a chipped dental crown. It’s all going to be okay. The dentist is the only person who will fix your broken or chipped crown. There are a few options regarding what will happen next. If the crown is still intact, your dentist can re-cement it back on and bond the broken crown. They could also replace the crown with a new one.

What causes a crown to break in the first place? There are a few reasons. You could be grinding your teeth in your sleep. It could happen if you fall down or suffer a traumatic blow to the face as well. Furthermore, biting something incredibly hard, such as a piece of candy, can break a crown. But it’s also possible due to normal wear and tear. Most dental crowns last anywhere from 10 to 15 years before they require replacing.
