Re: HELP! Does anyone know about how long a temporary filling lasts
Hi...temporary fillings may last a week or so, but it will definitely deteriorate and need to be replaced.....what is happening is the deterioration. If you go to your local pharmacy they will have temporary filling material that you can mix yourself and replace your filling as needed...it is called DentTemp. Possibly you could set up a payment plan with your dentist? Can family members help you with a loan....possibly use a credit card? What he has done has bought you some time, but try not to wait until it becomes a more serious problem.
