Mouthwash & avoiding chewing on that side altogether is all I can think.

toofy pegs is a kit that that mends crowns or has filler that you can create a temporary filling. i take it every where with me as i have a few crowns. it goes on holiday with me because one year i went scuba diving and came up to the top with my front crown in my mouth. I wasnt going to risk going to a greek dentist so ihad no front tooth for 12 days of my 2 week holiday. No smiling for me on the photos that year. i looked like witchypoogrin
