Porcelain Crown

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: belindaldo  (9 years ago)

In March 2010, I had a porcelain crown put in. Last Christmas, I accidentally bit down too hard while I was eating and the crown came off. The dentist was able to re-cement it. Now, the crown feels loose again. I am afraid it will come out anytime. What should I do to keep it from coming loose? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey belindaldo,

Apart from buying a 'temporary filling mix' from your local drugstore and using it to seal your crown for a while, your only permanent solution would be to get a dentist to re-seal it again, hoping you'd be luckier to outlast the last one this time around.

Good luck!

Crowns only come off when:

1. The tooth was prepared too short.
2. The tooth was prepared with sides too tapered.
3. The crown does not fit well.

Or a combination of these three. Other than do a new crown, the only option is have the dentist sandblast the inside of the crown, as well as the tooth, prior to cementing with a super-retentive cement with Parkell Metabond.
