I have dental insurance but it will not cover for my crown until another four months goes by. My crown fell off so I need to have it replaced. Can the dentist put back my crown that fell off until my waiting period is over for me to get a new one? I will wait out my waiting period since I do not have the money to pay for a new one. If the dentist can not put back on my old crown will my tooth be okay for another four months without one. What should I do?
