i have had one crown (porcelain) and after 3 years it had to be cemented back on.   Another crown came off after 1 year.  Also i have good gums floss etc .I dont eat hard candy or gummy stuff. why do they keep doing this both bottom mollars next to each other

Your teeth may be small or short, providing less surface area for the crowns to bond to. If you tend to grind or clench your teeth, the risk of these crowns coming off increases. New cavities or additional breakdown in the tooth itself can also cause a crown to come off.
