It is not unusual for a crown or veneer to fall off, especially if its been bonded onto your tooth for a long time. If a crown does fall off, do NOT try to put it back on your tooth by yourself. If you just put it on the tooth without it being bonded on by a dentist, then it can be swallowed or breathed in. Contact us and we will try to book you in as soon as we can so that we can try to cement the crown back on for you.

If the crown has fallen off because there is tooth decay under it, then we can’t simply bond it back on. Instead we will need to take an x-ray to assess the extent of the decay, and then remove the decay and stabilise the tooth before we can replace the crown.
