failing crown
Greetings -  at around the first of May 2010 dentist installed a temporary crown right side bottom molar while waiting for the permanent crown to arrive.  Temporary crown fell out while eating within a week of installation.  Dentist re-installed temporary, it fell out three days later.  

Permanent crown arrived but did not align properly so a second impression was made.  Since a temporary crown was installed and it too came loose.

When second permanent crown arrived, within two weeks it came loose.  Temporary crown was fitted with a stronger glue.  The fit did not feel proper, riding too high.  When I returned to the dentist, the assistant broke the second permanent crown, broke while being cleaned.  

Dentist decided to grind my tooth down a little more.  Dentist made a third impression, no temporary crown was made.
