Hello and Welcome to just answer.


I am sorry to hear about your discomfort.


Until you see your dentist,you can use “Dentemp” at home to fix your crown.


It is a traditional dental combination of zinc oxide and eugenol (clove oil) mixed.


You can use it to re-cement your cap. It is a strong material and will provide good adhesion. It is also used as temporary filling material.

Have a look at these sites for more information:
