  • Crowns are fixed to the tooth structure with luting cement. Temporary crown is fixed to the post with a temporary material.  Glue can’t be used to fix the crown on to post.  The material which is used to fix the crown has to be biologically friendly and you can’t use anything to fix it. Temporary crown is given by the dentist to provide protection to the prepared tooth, avoid infections and to prevent damage to the gums.  Temporary crowns also prevent food accumulation in the area and are given so that the patient gets used to the crown. Temporary crowns also serve esthetic purposes. If the crown fell, then you have to refer to your dentist so that he can fix it. If the permanent crown is prepared, your dentist may give you your permanent crown.
