Are you curious to know the differences between temporary crowns and traditional crowns? If so, our dentist, Dr. David Trebisovsky, is more than happy to help you. You will deal with both of these restorations when you are restoring your tooth with a tooth cap, which is another name for a dental crown. To help you know a little more about these restorations, he is happy to tell you all about the differences.
A temporary dental crown is the restoration placed over your tooth when you’re waiting for your traditional dental crown to be created. It’s a strong cap, but it’s not as strong as the traditional crown. It’s only meant to keep your tooth safe while you wait. This means you need to avoid chewing hard and sticky foods when the temporary crown is in your mouth.
When your traditional dental crown is created and sent back to our clinic, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and will cement the traditional dental crown over the abutment. The cement is very reliable, so the crown should stay strong and sturdy for many years, especially if you take good care of it.
