I had lunch with a group of friends last month and I noticed a friend was missing a tooth! I asked him why and he said he was getting a bone graft and then a dental implant so his dentist and oral surgeon thought to leave him like that for the nearly twelve months the bone graft and then dental implant would take to heal. I told him to visit my office and I would give him a custom-shaded “fixed” temporary crown that is not removable. Total treatment time was less than one hour. Note this is NOT a flipper which is a “removable” temporary tooth. Avoid lazy dentists.
