Q.

Crown came out

Whilst (stupidly) chewing a sweet, my crown came out - it is in one piece and looks fine. I have made an appointment with my dentist to have it (hopefully) re-fitted, but I could only get an appointment for next Monday (6 days away) - is this ok, or is it urgent that it gets put back asap? Also, as the crown is in undamaged, will he be able to just put it back, or will I have to have another one made>?

your dentist should see you for an emergency appointment.
it is impossible for me to tell you whether he can recement it without having seen the tooth /crown
