My new Lava zirconium crown has come off within 24 hours of being fitted.

I am concerned as the edge is jagged and I am concerned that recementing it back in is not good enough and a replacement is necessary.

Crown came off

Hi:

There could be multiple reasons as to why the crown has come off so fast.  One of the main reasons could be that the tooth surface was not completely dry.  Another reason could be that the bite was off and there was too much pressure on the crown.  I suggest you go back to your dentist right away and voice your concerns. 

Best,

Dr. Maddahi
