Sometime performing procedures for teeth are simply troublesome/difficult and seem to take on a life of their own, despite any dentist's best efforts.

If I was sitting in the dental chair, I would feel most assured if the dentist mentioned using a cement that forms a bond with both tooth structure and the type of post being used. Discussed using pins or divots to help anchor the core. And mentioned that after the new post and core they plan to reevaluate the preparation, especially in the area of the crown margins, to insure that a proper ferrule effect will exist. Then take a new impression and have a new crown made.

Probably your dentist already plans to do all of these things.
