How often should a crown fall off?

I’ve had a dental crown fall off six times.  I’ve not had any dental crowns and I’m wondering how common it is for them to fall off. it’s becoming quite inconvenient to constantly have to schedule appointments to have it bonded back in.

Six Times! Are you kidding me?  I need to tell you that most dentists go an entire career without having a crown fall out. I can’t hardly fathom a dentist have the same crown fall out more than once.

I’m going to tell you to go to a different dentist. If you can’t get into one quickly, I suggest just going to an emergency dentist.  Anyone is bound to bond it on better than your dentist.

I’m very sorry this happened to you.
