What should I do if I break a temporary crown?

Dental crowns in Royal Palm Beach are an excellent option for restoring a decayed, broken, or damaged tooth when a dental filling is not enough. The crown fits over your remaining healthy tooth structure to cover it entirely like a cap.

Part of getting a crown involves wearing a temporary crown for a while. We design temporary crowns to support you while you're waiting for the dental lab to handcraft your new porcelain crown.

While they are helpful, sometimes it's not uncommon for patients to have problems with breakdown or loss of a temporary crown. Contact your team at Affordable Dental Center of Wellington immediately if this happens. We will work you into our schedule to repair or replace your temporary crown.

Importance of Temporary Crowns

Your temporary crown protects your natural tooth and allows you to comfortably eat and chew during the interim of getting your permanent restoration. This process can typically take one to three weeks, so it's important not to try and live without your temporary crown because it could cause damage to your remaining tooth structure.
