Q: A veneer from one of my front teeth fell off (after 15 years), and it’s in one piece. In case I can’t get to the dentist tomorrow, can I re-attach it with Krazy Glue, or something like Temp Bond or another over-the-counter temporary cement?
A: I would highly recommend you avoid using superglue, Krazy Glue, or any other cyanoacrylate. Putting a cyanoacrylate on the tooth or veneer can make it very difficult to properly clean them and rebond the veneer.
You could try temporarily cementing it with a temporary cement, but veneers are normally bonded, not cemented, and cement usually won’t hold them. If it comes off again while eating you might bit it and break it.
If the veneer is intact and the tooth is intact with no decay, then the veneer can be properly rebonded. Your best bet is to get into a dentist as fast as possible and have it properly rebonded. This is a difficult, technical procedure requiring several chemicals that you just cannot get a hold of at home.
