Temporary Restorations


Temporary restorations are not strong, and are not meant to be long-lasting. They may break or come off occasionally. If so, slip it back on the tooth with some Fixodentâ„¢ (denture adhesive) and call us for an appointment. Please do not leave the temporary out of your mouth because the teeth will move and the final restoration will not fit. Please do not floss around your temporary crown.

The size, shape, and color of the temporary does not resemble the final restoration.

Temporary restorations may leak saliva or food onto the tooth. Sensitivity to hot, cold, pressure or sweets is not uncommon. If you feel the bite is not correctly balanced, please call for an appointment for a simple adjustment.
