Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.
That is unfortunate. But there is no need to worry. If it is as you say a temporary crown, then it is made up of acrylic, and it will be passed out with your stools in the next 24-48 hours.
But do inform your dentist about this when you next speak to him.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.
