I'm gonna go with see a dentist. It's Saturday, though, so you will have to wait until Monday unfortunately. Place your crown in a ziploc bag and see your dentist on Monday. You can call your dentist's office/emergency line but they will likely say "see you Monday" unless you are in pain. There are some community health and private practice dentist offices that are open on Saturdays, but they are few & far between.

I had a crown come off one time in the evening, called my dentist emergency number, he said to put some toothpaste on it and put it back on, that the paste would hold it in place and keep the rest of the tooth from damage until I could see him the next day. And to not chew on that side. Some dentists have weekend emergency service, check it out.

When a tooth that is covered with a crown is decayed or broken, or the post used to built up the tooth in order to receive a crown is broken, then unfortunately you need to repeat the post and crown. Sometimes if the post is detached, the dentist might cement it back in the root canal but it is a very temporary solution and not the best one. Usually there is a reason they get detached and cementing them back in does not solve the reason. It is practically impossible to build the tooth in the exact same dimensions in order to fit the old crown. Unless the tooth underneath the crown is healthy and strong and no alteration on it has to be made, then the whole procedure (impressions, crown fabrication, cementation) needs to be repeated.

It is better to replace the whole crown. What is your dentist advise you to do?

i have a hole in the top a gold crown that is an anchor tooth for a 3 tooth bridge. it is the bottom left rear molar. my prosthodontist recommends replacing entire bridge for $7000. a much cheaper but risky procedure would be to drill through the top where the hole is and clean out the excavation and put in a filling. but it may not get all the potential decay out and the tooth may be lost. any experience or opinion, anybody?
