Off White tooth cement is visible through tooth

by Jeff
(Royal Oak, MI)

My wife had a front tooth implant that came loose. The periodontist used temporary cement as my wife was not happy with the end results nor the periodontist and wanted the option to be able to remove it later if she had further work done.

She had another dentist glue the tooth back in last week but she says that the cement that was used this time is off white and can now be seen through the tooth. Originally the tooth was cemented in with Zone Temporary Cement made by DUX.

Finally my question: Are there certain temporary cements that are more white than others? If so, can someone suggest a few?

Go for glass ionomer cement.
Also - you must realize that this prosthesis that's coming out again and again, will be harmful for the implant ,try to find a permanent remedy with your dentist
