If a crown, bridge or veneer becomes detached and comes out then try to arrange to see us as soon as is convenient.
Delay may result in:
decay or damage to the tooth
tooth movements preventing replacement of the crown, bridge or veneer
the tooth may be sensitive to temperature
a typical lost crown – no nerve and post is still showing
We will investigate the cause and hopefully clean and recement the crown, bridge or veneer taking into account the necessary work to prevent further problems.
It is possible to buy temporary cementation kits from most pharmacies if you are unable to attend the surgery promptly
