Provisonal Restorations Part 2

We discussed in Part 1 the difference between a temporary crown and a provisional restoration. In Part 2 we will go through the actual lab phase of how we fabricate a provional restoration.

Step 1

We take a pre-op impression of the tooth/teeth we are going to prpare for a crown. Here is a picture of the patient before treatment.

 Step 2

 In the lab we pour up a silicone model of the pre-op impression

 Step 3

A wax up of the broken or misaligned teeth on the preop model  is made to the size, shape and contour that we want to achieve. Then we make a putty matrix of the altered cast.

Step 4

A self cure composite is flowed into the putty matrix and the indexed silicone model is inserted and removed after material has set.
