Today’s message is for anyone who has a broken dental crown. First off, you REALLY need to have it replaced. That said, you may be wondering which kind of dentist should replace it.
We advise that you contact the dentist who placed the crown. If you have moved or don’t remember where you got it, we invite you to consider Your Time Dental Urgent Care.
Why an urgent care dentist instead of a cosmetic dentist?
Urgent care dentists treat dental emergencies. But a dental emergency rarely requires only one procedure. Most use a cosmetic restoration once the initial problem is addressed. For example, a knocked-out tooth, a broken tooth, a chipped tooth, and most root canals all require restoration as the final step.
An urgent care specialist is a dental jack-of-all-trades.
Urgent care dentists serve you with restorative, general, and cosmetic dentistry. In other words, an urgent care dentist has extensive experience with cosmetic procedures. Some even perform dental implants.
What do you do when your dental crown breaks or comes off?
Don’t swallow it! Carefully take it out of your mouth. If you accidentally swallow it, you will have some extra dilemmas we won’t discuss in this article.
Call Your Time Dental Urgent Care. We will schedule you an appointment promptly and counsel you on whether you should use temporary cement to re-attach the crown. Your tooth is weakened, so abstain from substances that are chewy, sticky, or crunchy.
The dental professionals at Your Time Dental Urgent Care have been replacing dental crowns since 2001. If you have a broken crown, give us a call.
