Provisionalization of Crowns and Bridges

Published by Brian Homann DDS

There are many ways provisional restorations can be created for crowns or bridges or dental dental implants. The materials vary, but the technique is even more important. The eggshell technique can help create ideal soft tissue outcomes.

  • A prefabricated shell can be created and then relined.
  • Hard tissue stops are 100% necessary, so if there are none, this is a great way to do it.
  • This method works really well for full arch cases (that can include bridges) as well as posterior sextants on the mandible.
  • Bisacryl can be used to make a shell, and then hollow it out.
  • If this method is used, the shell created by the bisacryl needs to be trimmed in 2 different methods.
  • The shell can be about 0.5mm thick.
  • This provisional can also be done by a lab using milling.
  • When using bisacryl, one coat of bonding agent needs to be placed and cured, then a second layer needs to be placed, but not cured, then the temp needs to be relined.
  • Flowable composite at the margins are great for lab made temps.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
