Dentist Questions Crown

What will be done if my crown falls off?

I just had to have a crown put in over my tooth. Nothing bad has happened to it yet, but what would be done in case my crown falls off my tooth?

If your crown comes off, then you must consult with a dental professional. There could be an underlying problem on why the crown came off. Thank you for your question.
That all depends upon why the crown fell off. If it's because of recurrent decay, then you might lose the tooth. If the crown were well made, it should last a lifetime. Be sure to properly care for it by flossing, brushing and avoiding between meal snacks on carbohydrates. Also get your teeth checked and cleaned twice yearly.
