Permanent retainer is not keeping permanent crowns together. Prior to the crowns the permanent retainer held my real teeth together. Then I had veeners, the permanent retainer held it together fine. The retainer has been adjusted many times and is allowing the 2 top front crowns to stay together.

Retainer not working?
If the retainer is bonded to the back of your teeth special bonding material will be necessary to stick to a crown, if your teeth have shifted you may want to align first and then have a retainer made good luck
