The purpose of placing a crown is to give the area maximum strength, esthetics and comfort for many years to come.
Each time we work on a toothsome trauma is inflicted which might result in some sensitivity. Particularly the gums around the tooth and where the anesthetic was placed are most often affected.
To protect the underlying teeth and to allow you to chew as normally as possible, we have placed a temporary crown. The impression that we took towards the end of your appointment has been sent to our dental laboratory. In about a week we will have received your custom manufactured restoration back from the laboratory.
The temporary crown is glued on with temporary cement to allow for easy removal at your next appointment. If inadvertently your temporary has come loose, please call the office to have it recemented.
If you have any questions please call the office.
