If you have a broken tooth crown then it is essential that you seek dental treatment immediately. Typically, crowns can last anywhere from five to fifteen years, however, sometimes they can break or fall out before this time, depending on the circumstances. When this happens a dentist will need to either fix or replace the crown quickly to avoid any damage occurring to the natural tooth underneath.
Dental crowns are usually fitted to protect your tooth, so when one breaks the exposed tooth underneath can be very vulnerable. If the crown has chipped then it may be possible to repair it. If the chip is not too large then, depending on what type of crown you have, a dentist may use a tooth coloured resin to fix the damage. However, if a crown is damaged beyond repair then a new one will be fitted to strengthen and restore the structure of the tooth.
