Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

Ideally, it should be re-cemented by a permanent cement by a dentist. However, in an exceptional circumstance such as this, you can buy a temporary luting cement yourself and fit it back on.

Try "Dentemp" . It is a traditional dental combination of zinc oxide and eugenol (clove oil) mixed when needed to re-cement a cap or a bridge. It's strong enough that you'll need to have a dentist remove it later.

Have a look at these sites for more information:

However, please remember to not chew anything sticky , and to visit your dentist as soon as you are back.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.

Good Luck !

Regards,
Dr. Behere
