  • describe the role and importance of temporary and provisional restorations
  • list 3 different techniques for the production of temporary and provisional restorations
  • describe the materials that can be used to construct temporary and provisional restorations

Temporary and provisional restorations are an integral part of fixed prosthodontics.

A temporary restoration is generally regarded as the interim restoration that is provided on a prepared tooth during the production of the definitive cast restoration. By definition, a temporary restoration should only be in place for a few weeks, at most, while the final fixed prosthesis is constructed.
