Will my temporary crown give the doctors problems?

My temporary crown has come off and im concerned because my dentist appointment to get the real one put in is not until a week later will it be able to fit?

Hello there,
Going without your temporary for one day isn't a huge issue, but I would not recommend going without it longer than that because a temporary crown prevents neighboring teeth from shifting and helps protect the underlying tooth. I would recommend seeing your dentist as soon as possible to have a new temporary put on. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
