In brief: Don't use superglue!

If you mean "lose" as in cannot find, then you'll have to see a dentist to make a new one.
If you mean "lose", like came off the tooth while eating and i still have the crown in my possession, then don't use superglue to replace it. Drugstores usually have temporary glue you can use, but eventually you'll have to see a dentist to get it replaced properly. This is much less costly than a new one.

In brief: See a dentist.

Take your friend to a dentist, he will need to have the crown replaced.
It's a very simple procedure. If you have the old crown that fell out you should bring that with you- don't throw it away!
