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

what to do if dental crown comes off Oklahoma City

Dental crowns are restorations that are cemented over a tooth that has been repaired, and we place a lot of them at OKC Smiles in Oklahoma City.

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

There are three steps:

  • First things first, find your crown if it has come off entirely. We can reattach it. If you can’t find it, don’t worry. We can make a replacement.
  • Next, give us a call. Even if we didn’t do the original we can help.
  • 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 OKC Smiles in Oklahoma City we place a lot of dental crowns. People from Norman, Edmond, and Mustang also appreciate our emergency dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today!
