I was on vacation when my crown broke off. I didn’t want to cut my vacation short so I superglued my crown. I don’t think I glued it correctly. Will my dentist be able to fix it?

I’m sure that worried you to be away from familiar surroundings when your crown came off. SuperGlue may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but as you know now, it is easy to glue something, but not always easy to get it in the exact correct position.
First, don’t panic. Your dentist will be able to get the superglue off. That doesn’t mean your crown can be saved, but hopefully the dentist will be able to get it off in one piece.
If this ever happens again, you don’t have to glue it. There are emergency dentists in every city, who will see you even if you’re not an established patient.
