A temporary crown or cap can be of the material poly acrylic or stainless steel. A temporary bridge is made of poly acrylic resin and may be re-enforced by metal. They are use to protect the vital pulp tissue in the crown of the tooth. It is used on a natural tooth crown, which has been damage-broken or fractured beyond repair for a filling. It also protects a tooth from fracture, which has had completion of root canal therapy. The tooth may have lost its prosthetic permanent crown and it is too damage to repair and cement back into place. It is used for esthetics, to establish proper or functional dental occlusion and to maintain the position of a tooth that is being restored for a permanent crown or as an abutment to a bridge. Major and costly dental work can be prevented with proactive home care, healthy nutrition and regular dental checkups. Do not use any type of glue to recement back on the crown to the tooth.
