|Temporary Crowns and Bridges
You have been provided 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 (ie: if it fractures, or comes uncemented), even if you are not experiencing sensitivity.
Caring for your temporary restoration:
Please contact our office if your temporary becomes uncemented, broken, or lost. 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 $35.00 to $100.00 depending on the complexity of the repair/replacement.
Our office also offers anterior bridges, for those who have lost multiple teeth in the front of your mouth. If you believe you can benefit from a bridge, give us a call.
If your temporary comes off after office hours, holidays, weekends, etc. Please first call our office. There will be a contact number to leave a message for the doctor. If your tooth is sensitive or the temporary is necessary for aesthetics, you may replace it on a short-term basis using denture adhesive (i.e. poly grip).
