My crown is old and broken. What should I do?

If you are concerned about a broken crown, you should definitely make an appointment to have it examined.  Do not wait until your tooth or gums hurt!  Typically, by the time teeth start to hurt, there is extensive damage present.  Dr. Gray will look at the condition of your crown, look for any new decay around the edges of the crown, evaluate an x-ray of the tooth with the crown, and discuss his findings and options for treatment with you. 

Sometimes a broken crown is a purely cosmetic problem and the tooth underneath is still healthy. Other times there may be new decay present where the crown meets the tooth, or the fracture may allow food to become trapped between the teeth. This condition puts both the crowned tooth and the tooth next to it at high risk for new decay.  The sooner a broken crown is examined, the better.
