How long will recement last after crown from tooth came off?

Impossible to know

Facts_or
That depends upon so many factors- Which tooth? how well the crown fits, why the crown came off, was more tooth structure lost? Type of crown? which cement used? your eating habits, crown length, etc. Your own dentist would be able to give you the best assessment and prognosis.

Dr. John J. Thaler answered:

Loose tooth post-root canal & crowning, how can this be remedied?

Complex

Crown
The root canal treatment is probably now recontaminated and usually will need to be 'retreated'. However, if this loosening has occurred, then it may be that there is not enough solid tooth to support the crown and biting forces. Might not be a good idea to fix this, but rather extract it and have an implant placed with a crown after 3 - 4 months. See Prosthodontist for options. Good Luck.

Dental post can be used to support tooth before crowning. How does it work?

Reinforcement

Crown
A post placed in a tooth before a crown is placed transfers biting forces down into the root of the tooth, taking stress off the coronal portion.

How is crowning done on a tooth??

See below

Crown
A compromised tooth (fracture, failing old filling) may need to be covered and protected by a crown. First, there must be enuf healthy tooth as a foundation. It may be necessary to do a "core buildup". Then the tooth is reduced in all dimensions (ground down if you must), a mold (impression) is taken, and then a crown is custom fabricated to recreate the tooth that was once there.

Dr. Ahmad Eslami answered:

What will I need to avoid after a tooth crowning?

Dental crowns

Flossing
Follow a good oral hygiene at home. It should include adequate brushing and flossing. See your dentist on a regular basis for check up and "cleaning". Keep the plaque off your teeth. It's best to be proactive.

How far is it possible for you drill a tooth down without crowning it?

Why Is it Drilled

Open-uri20120901-9426-133g27n
It depends why the tooth is being drilled. If the bite is off, an adjustment of the tooth usually takes off a small fraction of a millimeter of the enamel outer coating. Small areas of decay can be drilled out & a simple filling placed. When decay is deep, the tooth is fracture or more and 1/2 to 2/3 of the tooth needs restoring then a crown is needed

Dr. Tarek Hamid answered:

What is the solution for composite restoration overhanged proximally in RCT tooth?do i have to remove old one and replace it or crowning the tooth?

Depends

Cavity
It really depends on the condition of the tooth,is it otherwise healthy with intact walls? If so then have the filling replaced so you floss there without a problem . If the tooth is heavenly restored with large or multiple filling then crowning the tooth would be best.

How much does tooth shaping cost vs a crown?

$ vs. $$$ - $$$$

Open-uri20120721-12303-eu48va
Tooth shaping is called enameloplasty or odontoplasty & dentists usu charge a very minimal amount from $0 - $100 per tooth. Depending on where you live in the U.S., a crown can range anywhere from $500 - $2000. The range in cost is due to type of material used, the type of practice you're at (primarily DMO insurance dependent or boutique), the skill of the dentist, the quality of the dental lab.

Varies by region

There is nothing MORE ESTHETIC than a porcelain/ceramic crown and the research is showing that they are every bit as durable as porcelain to metal crowns. Fees range from 550 to 1100 per tooth depending on the dentist.
