Lost Crown or Filling

Storage: If you lost a crown, fillings, or part of your tooth gently and carefully clean any debris and put it in a sealed zip log bag for safe keeping

  • Always bring the item to your visit. Sometimes we are able to recement crowns or bond your missing tooth back together.

Temporary Dental Material: You may get any temporary dental material from a drug store to cover the exposed area of tooth or place in the hole in your tooth.

  • Exposure of underlying tooth structure from a lost crown or missing filling can cause a lot of tooth sensitivity
    • Avoid hot and cold beverages and foods. 
    • Avoid chewing on that side to prevent food from getting stuck. 

Cleaning:

  • Rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out.
  • Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth.

Even if you are not in pain, it is important to have the area evaluated as soon as possible with your dentist to prevent further breaking, decay, or loss of tooth.
