A dental crown is used to cover the entire surface of a tooth, which has been destroyed, worn, or damaged; the dental crown can also be used to improve the appearance of severely discoloured teeth, to cover a dental implant, or to hold a dental bridge in its proper position. Any damage to the dental crown can expose the sensitive areas of the tooth to even more damage, and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for the patient.
will need to be addressed as soon as possible, so that the damage can be dealt with immediately to prevent complications from arising. Chips on porcelain dental crowns can be repaired using composite resin; however, if the chip or crack is extensive, the whole dental crown may need to be replaced. This is to ensure that the entire broken dental crown will still be able to do its work in protecting the affected tooth from dental problems, and from even further damage. A dental crown that accidentally falls off can still be re-attached by the dentist especially if the concern is seen immediately, provided that the crown has not been damaged.
You have to keep your crown secure so you can have it re-cemented as soon as you can to prevent further damage. Sometimes, a root canal treatment is recommended.
