Is a dental crown supposed to wobble a little bit?

No: A dental crown is cemented into place with a water resistant cement or water proof cement and should not wobble or move. Perhaps your whole tooth is moving. Get checked for periodontal disease, root canal problems, or hyperocclusion. (the crown if left higher than the rest can receive too much pressure and lateral forces causing mobility) Read more

As: As dr scharf advised, it can be remade and should be made so that you are happy. Were you given a mirror to look at the crown before it was cemented in your mouth I always give my patients a mirror so that they can give me their approval. Before your dentist inserts your new crown, take a look and make sure you are happy. Read more

I'm wondering how long should dental crown pain last?

I'm wondering how long should dental crown pain last?

Pain after crown: Sensitivity is not uncommon after a crown is placed. If this goes away, 6-8 weeks, then tooth is recovering and getting back to normal. However, the transition from temperature sensitivity to constant pain is a bad sign. There is a chance you are going to need an endodontic treatment. See your dentist for re-evaluation. Good luck.

Can you tell me what to do about dental crown breaking?

Can you tell me what to do about dental crown breaking?

Replace it but...: All dental materials will break down over time. Hell, your natural teeth breakdown without a dentist intervening! Have your dentist try to ascertain the cause of your crown's fracture. Was the underlying tooth not reduced enough for the crowns porcelain? Does your bite need adjusting? Maybe an all metal crown or a strong all zirconium is called for? Don't repeat the issue that caused it. Read more
