Implant front tooth

Hoping for some help and guidance please
Nearly 30 years ago I had 2 front teeth caps.
3 weeks ago, just out of the blue and after a little
niggling, my front tooth just completely sheared off.
Of course I was pretty upset, I looked like Nanny McPhee!
With the help of my daughter in law, I found a dentist and
contacted them. They gave me a price to have a new screw
in tooth fitted after the old roots were taken out of the gum.
The appt was booked for 1 1/2 hours and my son dropped me
off. I was in the dental surgery from sitting in the chair to paying
the receptionist 19minutes, he just didn't seem to care.
The temp replacement tooth he put in was shorter then my other
front tooth but as the numbing wore off my gum seemed sore. My son
looked at it and the tooth was absolutely terrible, all glue around my
gums and 3 big hard rough bits. Also in 2 days it fell out.
I went back to the dentist (personality of a slug) he redone it. Honestly,
it looked even more of a mess than the first one, and once again it has
fallen out in just over a week. You can see by the picture that it
looks like a lump of popcorn. I know he was peed off with me going back
to about the 'first' replacement. Before doing a second replacement, he put some
acid stuff in my mouth and for days the acid burnt my lips and my tongue and was really sore.
I have paid him good money and still have more to pay in 3months when the
proper tooth is fitted. I feel really down and fed up, tearful and STILL with a gap

How did you find this dentist? Where are you located? In the US, there are no excuses for such poor service since there are too many better dentists down the street.

I'm sorry for your poor experience. In the US, we are required to wear masks during this Covid pandemic. Usually, no one will notice your less than perfect temporary restoration.
