Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

Do not just place the crown on your tooth without any kind of adhesive.

Try "Dentemp" . It is a traditional dental combination of zinc oxide and eugenol (clove oil) mixed when needed to re-cement a cap or a bridge. It's strong enough that you'll need to have a dentist remove it later.

Have a look at these sites for more information:

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.
