If you have lost a tooth due to trauma, decay, or periodontal disease you might be wondering how long it is going to take you to get your permanent teeth. The average adult tooth takes two years to grow in while the average baby tooth takes one year. If you can't wait another two years to eat an Oreo cookie then what are you supposed to do? If the tooth loss is serious then it may be time for a visit to the dentist. The best temporary option might be dentures. Dentures made with real teeth that fully resist heat, cold, and acid can make eating easier and more enjoyable.

Many people who have chipped, cracked, or missing teeth rely on temporary treatments to feel at ease in social situations. 

Some of these false teeth are even strong enough to chew with! 

Let's go through several temporary tooth alternatives and how to choose the best one for you.

Foods to Eat with Temporary Veneers

What foods to Avoid with Temporary Veneers?

What foods to Avoid with Temporary Veneers

Temporary veneers are more prone to become displaced since they are normally fastened to your teeth with temporary cement.

There are a few items that patients should avoid until their final veneers are in place to avoid this. If you're wearing temporary veneers, for example, we recommend avoiding:

  • Candy, fresh fruits and vegetables, popcorn, ice, and similar products are examples of hard foods.
  • Tough cuts of meat
  • Caramels and other sticky foods

What are my options if I need temporary teeth?

There are several options available to you if you're considering a temporary solution for covering or protecting damaged and missing teeth. Here are three common examples:

Snap-on veneers

"Snap-on teeth," "snap-on smile," and "clip-on veneers" are all terms used to describe snap-on veneers. This option, like a flipper tooth, gives the illusion of a whole smile with no gaps caused by missing or broken teeth. Snap-on veneers, like flipper teeth, are manufactured by taking an imprint of your teeth and are often composed of acrylic or resin.

The main difference between snap-on veneers and flippers is that snap-on ones are meant to completely cover the permanent teeth, whereas flipper ones only partially cover them. Snap-on veneers can make your teeth appear larger. On the other hand, snap-on teeth are convenient because you can put them on whenever you want!

Temporary tooth implant

In many circumstances, a dentist will offer you with a temporary tooth implant while you wait for your permanent implant to arrive from the lab. There are, however, over-the-counter treatments that can assist you in dealing with a dental emergency.

Many pharmacies and big box merchants, for example, provide emergency tooth replacement kits. These kits include thermoplastic beads that are softened and pliable by soaking them in hot water. You may then use your fingers to mould the beads into a firm, tooth-shaped lump that will replace the space left by your lost teeth. Because of the qualities of the temporary tooth mass, you may tweak it until it is locked into place with your existing teeth.

While this is one of the most affordable options, the temporary implant can be quickly lost when eating a normal meal, which can be a huge downside in terms of comfort and confidence.

Flipper tooth

A flipper tooth is a removable retainer that fits snugly against the shape of your palate or jaw. This retainer has one or more prosthetic teeth connected to it that fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. A flipper tooth can also be thought of as a temporary partial denture that offers the illusion of a full grin. Your dentist can provide you with a flipper tooth. The procedure for creating one is quite simple. First, the dentist uses a soft, clay-like substance to make an impression of your mouth.

This imprint is submitted to a dental lab, which utilises it to produce a custom flipper tooth that fits your mouth's specific curves and fills any gaps with acrylic teeth. When compared to OTC kits with temporary teeth, flipper teeth are typically a more comfortable and long-lasting solution. They may also be used to consume a variety of foods. They are, however, nonetheless frail and readily shattered.
