Is It Common for Part of a Dental Crown to Break off Within 5 Weeks After Crown Was Recemented?
Crown on my lower molar was loose. Dentist "popped" it off & recemented it. 5 wks later, a corner of crown fell off while I was eating. Dentist said the crown may have had a fracture in it and that is why it broke. He did not see a fracture at time of recementing. Is this common to have a crown develop a fracture & break off after being recemented? Also, dentist did a "resin composite - 3 surfaces" to fix crown. Is that okay or should crown have been replaced?
