Temporaries are only temporaries and they sometimes do not match since our colors for temporaries are somewhat limited. The laboratory will match the custom shade that best matches the color of your teeth. Your goal is to have the final crowns match. Don't settle for less.

Temporaries do not match real teeth color
Temporaries, are just that; Temporaries and we do not have a series of custom color material to match their color with real teeth. Only be concerned with the permanent to match your teeth. Before your dentist bonds or cements your permanent crown in , ask to see it in a mirror to be sure.
Temporary crowns not matching teeth!?
Talk to your personal dentist. It is usually not a problem as long as the color is close. The temporary crown material only comes in certain shades. Make sure that you check the permanent crowns in your mouth before they are permanetly placed. If the temporary crowns are not close in shade, then I would definitely ask about the permanent shade color.
