    Hi. I've a crown on my last lower moler not (wisdom tooth). It's not covering all the tooth, some tooth walls are intact. it's come off a couple of times. The dentist re fit it and it came off again a month later. I was eating jelly sweets at the time, not toffee though. I've refit it with using a paste type kit from Lloyds pharmacy and it feels as good as before. Will this kit secure it as well, and also protect it from any bacteria?

    No a kit won't secure it long term. You need the tooth to be adjusted and a new crown made. Crowns should not come off if they are well made and if the tooth is well prepared. Perhaps it's time to find a new dentist.
