The ability to create and modify provisional restorations simply and quickly has opened the door to predictable aesthetic dentistry. Unlike plastic surgery, dental temporization allows the patient to preview his or her new smile and then alter it as necessary for functional, esthetic and phonetic reasons. A well-made temporary restoration, the key to an aesthetic restoration, provides the lab with a blueprint for tooth length, width, thickness, arch form and position, midline cant, and occlusion. Once the patient has approved the temporary, the lab replicates it in porcelain using silicone templates. In this CE webinar, material selection and usage, as well as the working/re-working process (all crucial to the success of temporaries) will be thoroughly discussed.
