Abstract

This article presents a technique for fabricating an esthetic provisional restoration on multiple implants. Fabricating a provisional restoration allows the dentist to make a replica of the desired restoration. The incisai edge can be placed for esthetics and function in the new provisional restoration, allowing patients to evaluate comfort and test their ability to speak with the contour of the provisional restoration. Patients can evaluate both the ease of cleaning the restoration and how tissue esthetics can be duplicated to their satisfaction. By adding acrylic resin to or removing it from the provisional, the dentist can easily change the restoration until the patient is satisfied with the esthetic and functional result. This technique will allow the dentist to fabricate the provisional prosthesis quickly, while the patient is in the chair.
