What can be done about tooth from which crown keeps coming loose?

Q.
I had a crown fitted on my front top tooth, and months after, it snapped off during an accident. The dentist fitted a post to the tooth, drilled a hole and cemented it in. He said after time it will come loose and fall out. I have been put off and scared ever since and now it as fallen out and I have been using cement bought from Boots to hold it in for weeks at a time.
What can be done about this tooth? I have many other bad teeth but this on is priority
A.
It all depends on how much tooth is left.
It is fractured at gum level the tooth may need to be exracted and then a denture, bridge or implant used to replace it
