Temporary Provisional Materials CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

When creating crowns and bridges for patients, temporary provisional materials are needed to fill in the area while the creation process for the final replacement takes place. This allows patients to not only see what their final crown, veneer, or bridge will look and feel like, but also enables them to comfortably speak and eat. In addition, by having a temporary tooth for a few weeks before the final version is placed, patients will have the time to consider whether there are any apparent flaws or concerns they have with the appearance or feel of the tooth. In turn, this reduces time and money necessary to alter or recreate the final tooth replacement.

There are also a number of reasons why temporaries are necessary from beyond a cosmetic point of view. First, the material fills the empty space in the mouth to keep the patient’s teeth from shifting into the area, which would exacerbate the final placement. In addition, it protects any remaining exposed pieces of tooth from pain, plaque, and cavities, among other complications.

The materials most frequently used to create these temporary materials include metal, plastic, light-cured resins, or resin composites and cements.

There are several tools on the market that can make the creation of temporary materials more convenient for dental practitioners. LED curing lights can quickly harden and bond composite materials, and there are also tools that quickly and easily create temporaries that closely match the color and shape of patients’ other teeth. The most advanced tools make dispensing, trimming, and cleaning the material quick and efficient for practitioners.

Ultimately, the reliability and success of temporary provisional materials depends on the strength and durability of the material used, its ability to protect the area it’s covering, and the aesthetic appearance and feel of the material in order to give patients an idea of what their final result will look and feel like. Choosing the best materials and tools on the market, therefore, is important to the success of this first step in dental restoration.

I couldn’t turn around and go to my dentist, over an hour away from where I was. So I stopped at the first dental office I saw, explained the situation, and was seated...
