FaQ – Temporary Crowns

How long do temporary crowns last?

Temporary crowns are designed to last for a short period, typically a few weeks to a couple of months, until the permanent crown is ready. They are made from materials intended for short-term use and should be treated with care to ensure they remain intact and functional during this period.

Can you eat normally with a temporary crown?

While wearing a temporary crown, it’s advisable to avoid very sticky, hard, or chewy foods that could dislodge or damage the crown. Patients should also be cautious with extremely hot or cold foods to avoid sensitivity. Generally, a balanced diet can still be maintained, but with some caution.

What should I do if my temporary crown comes off or breaks?

If a temporary crown comes off or breaks, it’s important to contact the dentist as soon as possible. The dentist can re-cement or replace the temporary crown to protect the tooth. Keeping the crown safe and bringing it to the dental appointment can be helpful.
