Temporary tooth

    OMG I just came out of a 2 hour dental appointment and I feel rubbery.

    I have a temporary tooth while the lab creates the permanent one and I look like a pirate. Why can't they make temporary teeth look more like real teeth? Or at least why can't they tone down the whiteness of the material? I have a week before my next dental appointment... Maybe I can paint it gold in the meantime, or glue sparkles on it or something...

    Is it a crown you are having fitted? Is it on the front? I have had many crowns (in the back) and I have veneers on the front. The temps have all been pretty good. Be extra careful when you eat between now and when you have it replaced, as it could fall off (unlikely - but it could happen). The bonding/glue isnt very strong. If its a crown, there is only a nub underneath.... you have to protect it.
