This article describes a method to fabricate single provisional restorations for multiple preparations using an indirect technique. Provisional restorations need to mimic the definitive restoration as closely as clinically possible. When multiple adjacent provisional restorations are fabricated, the ability to make each separately, with its own path of insertion and contour, aids in providing a predictable final result for the patient. Individual provisional restorations will also allow the patient to maintain better hygiene. (J Prosthet Dent 2009;102:260-263).
