Keith Rossein, DDS (view profile)
Duration: 4 Hours
Aesthetically pleasing provisional or temporary restorations requires a sophisticated knowledge of the purposes for provisionalization as well as knowledge of the best materials to use. In addition, in order to perform this service most effectively, knowledgeable dentists recognise that auxiliary personnel can save time and perform many of the laboratory and educational functions. Both direct and indirect methods of construction are presented in detail. A method of reinforcing and strengthening these provisional restorations for longer use by the patient is suggested. To conclude, the finishing of these restorations is discussed.
Accompanying the description of the construction of these provisional restorations are useful photographs illustrating the procedures. This workbook is invaluable to the crown and bridge clinician.
