What If My Dental Crown Cracks, Comes Loose, or Comes Off?

what to do if dental crown comes off HoustonDental crowns are restorations that are cemented over a tooth that has been repaired, and we place a lot of them at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.

While the cement is strong and reliable, crowns have been known to come off. It may have loosened or come off while brushing or flossing, or eating something sticky.  Here is what to do if your crown comes off.

There are three steps:

  1. First things first: find your crown if it has come off entirely. If you can’t find it, don’t worry. We can make a replacement.
  2. Next, give us a call. Even if we didn’t do the original we can reattach it.
  3. If your crown comes off after business hours, use denture adhesive to get it back in place temporarily. Do not use ordinary glue! You can find denture adhesive at a drugstore.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston we place a lot of dental crowns, and with great success. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to our office for our complete cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

dentist crowns Houston

We treat all of our patients royally here at The Gentle Art  of Dentistry in Houston, but some of them receive actual crowns. Not what a king or queen wears, of course, but crowns for your teeth!

Crowns are sometimes called caps, and they’re placed over a tooth to restore its shape and strength, and to improve its overall appeaerance. They are useful for a many problems:

  • To cover and provide durability to a tooth with a large filling and little tooth structure remaining.
  • To restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.
  • To improve a tooth that is too small or misshapen.
  • To cover a tooth with acute discoloration.
  • To add strength to a tooth following a root canal procedure.

There are different kinds of crowns that serve different purposes. We carry out an extensive examination to ensure the crown you get is perfect for you and your smile.

Once they are placed, dental crowns can last many years. They are great way to guard and enhance your smile. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, we also offer a full range of general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!
