Gold crown and pin repair
I have a gold crown and pin that came loose and has now fallen out. Am wondering what can be done to have it re-attached. Is the pin coming out going to present a problem. Can it be cemented back in? Being that I have no insurance, is it an expensive procedure. And is it something that I would have have done right away.
Yes, it is possible to repair, but it has to be done right away. If there are no caries, it may be re-cemented.
