We have provided you with a temporary crown/bridge to wear until your final restoration is ready. This temporary restoration serves several purposes:
For these reasons, it is important to inform us if you have any problems with your temporary restoration.
Temporaries are normally worn for a period of three to four weeks before receiving your permanent crown/bridge.
Please contact our office and let us know if the temporary is in one piece, multiple pieces or lost, and if you are experiencing sensitivity or discomfort. This will help us be prepared to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. There is no charge for the first recementation or remake of your temporary should this be necessary. Any additional repairs will have a nominal fee of $35 to $100 depending on the complexity of your temporary.
In case your temporary comes off after office hours, holidays, weekends, etc. and your tooth is sensitive or the temporary is necessary for aesthetics, you may replace it on a short-term basis using denture adhesive such as Polygrip.
Be advised: The following fix is strictly for aesthetics or comfort!
In most cases, it is important to have your temporary replaced. We will try to coordinate this with your schedule as much as possible. Every attempt is made to accommodate you as soon as possible.
Most patients have no problems with their temporary restoration; however, if you do experience any problems or have any questions, please call our office.
