Could a dentist forget to place temporary crown?

This morning my dentist prepared a back tooth for a crown. She said she would place a temporary crown on but I don't remember her doing so. The tooth doesn't look to have a crown on at all - black part like what an amalgam filling looks, and feels soft and funny but anaesthetic is only just wearing off. Am I worrying about nothing or could the dentist have possibly forgotten to put the temporary crown on? I'm due to see her again in 10 days for the permanent crown fitting.

Might be that the temporary crown was placed, but came loose. Do you have a photo of the area?
