Temporary Crowns


Temporary Crowns

If you have a root canal, a damaged tooth, or a dental implant, you will need a traditional crown to protect the area. However, a permanent crown takes some time to fabricate, so a temporary crown will be placed in the meantime.

A temporary crown is a cap that is shaped like a tooth, used to protect a natural tooth or dental implant until a permanent crown can be fabricated and placed. Since a temporary crown is more delicate than a permanent one, you must take extra precautions when chewing or flossing to avoid cracking or loosening it.

Dr. Isaac Perle and the team at Cambridge Dental Group are experienced with placing dental crowns to improve the aesthetics of your smile as well as prevent further damage to the affected tooth, as well as neighboring teeth.

What is a Temporary Crown Used For?

A temporary crown protects the natural tooth or implant and gums, limits tooth/gum sensitivity, allows you to smile without a gap, helps you chew/eat, allows Dr. Perle and the team to test the functionality of the crown, and maintains proper spacing between teeth.

How long will you need a temporary crown?

The length of time you will need your temporary crown depends on the extent of dental treatment required. Typically, you will have it for 2 to 3 weeks, but possibly longer if you require a lot of work. For example, if you need dental implants, you will need at least several weeks and sometimes months for the jawbone to heal before Dr. Perle can place a permanent crown.

Caring for a temporary crown

Caring for your temporary crown will require a little more effort. You’ll want to take extra precautions while flossing so that you do not dislodge the crown. Instead of pulling up and down, you’ll want to slide the floss in and out. Additionally, you’ll want to be gentle when brushing your teeth- and use a soft-bristled brush. You will want to practice proper oral hygiene habits to keep the area around the temporary crown clean.

Do You Need a Crown?

If you have a damaged tooth or have had a missing tooth replaced with an implant, you will need a permanent crown. However, these typically take 1 to 2 weeks to fabricate, so a temporary crown will be placed in the meantime. You can trust Dr. Perle and the team to place your temporary crown and eventually, the permanent replacement.

  • I had BriteSmile done. My husband had gone to Dr. Perle’s office for the same treatment; he’s gone a couple of time, so he actually referred me. I felt very confident they knew what they were doing. They were professional, the doctor was nice, and the woman who did it explained everything. It worked out very well. I would do it again.

  • My name is Aaron Bickel and they reattached a bridge that had fallen out. I found them to be knowledgeable about the procedure and he explained everything before he did it and did a good job and did what he needed to do. They got back to me very quickly which was good, it was at night on a Saturday. Everything went well. I would recommend them.
