Bite too high after getting temporary crown

I had the impression for a crown done today, and now my bite feels too high with the temporary crown on. If I'm not really careful, it is a bit uncomfortable to chew since I can that tooth hitting the one below. The rest of my teeth also don't touch anymore because of it. I have an appointment in 2 weeks to have the permanent crown put on.

Can my current situation wait 2 weeks, or should I try to get it fixed before then?

Should I be concerned about my bite being off with the permanent crown as well?

Good day

You can call the dentist to have the bite adjusted on the temporary crown. If left like that, there is a chance that the temporary crown can break, leaving the underlying prepared area exposed.
This should not be a problem with the permanent crown, but make sure the crown is comfortable, before leaving the dental offices.

You should certainly get it reduced. A well-fitting temp crown should closely mimic the size and shape of the permanent crown. If the dentist adjusts the temp crown to fit your bite, and the temp crown becomes too thin, then it's likely the final crown will have a similar problem. If temp crown is too thin, then he should take more away from your natural tooth and take a new impression - no charge.
