As clinicians, we are constantly drawn to the quality of how well teeth have been prepared, how smooth the margins are, how good impressions are taken and how beautiful the final result of a cuspal coverage restoration looks.
In the past, I along with many of my esteemed colleagues have always asked the same questions;
1. Where did you learn to prep like that?
2. What burs do you use?
3. How do you get your margins so clean?
4. What is your impression material of choice and what technique do you use?
5. Which lab do you use?
We do this because we are driven by results and final outcomes for our patients, but one thing is routinely overlooked and seldom asked;
WHAT ABOUT TEMPORISATION?
How do you temporise a tooth you are going to restore?
What temporary material/s should you use and why?
How do you make temporary crowns look natural?
What is and how do you make a Functional and Aesthetic temporary restoration?
Does the temporary restoration really matter or make a difference?
What determines the type of temporary restoration you use and why?
How do you prevent sensitivity while the temporary is on?
How long do you temporise for?
Do I need to be concerned about the soft tissues?
What happened between the impression and the fit?
When Can I use a Temporary / Provisional Restoration?
