Dental crowns are strong, reliable, and sturdy restorations that can repair and enhance your tooth. However, things like a blow to the face, suction from sticky products, or daily wear and tear can damage your dental crown and even make it fall out of place. If this happens to you, there is no need to panic. There are things you can do to improve the situation.
First, you need to call Vela Dental Centers Kingsville at 361.592.4373 and schedule an appointment. Dr. Ben Vela & Alan Rodriguez is the only one who can fully restore and repair your dental crown. So, schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience and don’t forget to bring your crown with you.
Second, put the crown back onto your tooth if possible. To secure it in place, use over-the-counter dental cement or sugar-free gum for now. All you need to do is fill the center of the crown with these sticky products and put the tooth back into place. If the crown fails to stay, just keep it safe until your appointment so you don’t break or lose it.
Third, eliminate and discomfort or pain. Sometimes a broken crown can cause pain, so please to take over-the-counter painkillers as needed. This should give you the comfort you need until you see your dentist.
