    Didn,t your dentist tell you?


    How long is a piece of string?

    not to long mine kept falling off. hope you get your permanent  cap soon.

    Normally only long enough for the dental technician to make the permanent crown. That should be no more than two weeks maximum.

    It is called a "temporary" cap because you are going to get a nicer one for keeps.  The temp can last quite a while if you take care of it!   Your cap should be ready in a couple of weeks.  If the temp doesn't last that long the dentist can replace it. 

    I think you can go back in and have it re-glued if you are having trouble paying for the permanent one.

    I've had a temp cap for 25 years.
