If the tooth is still in good shape,it can be reprepped and a new cap can be made.In some cases,the old cap can be retrofitted to fit the tooth if the margins are still in good shape.Is it possible for you to upload a picture of what you have remaining in your mouth where the cap was previously cemented?

Are you in any pain? Do you have any swelling?
