How are temporary crowns made?


How are your temporary crowns made? (for patients undergoing restoration using fixed bridge)

Read on and find out!

Step 1 - Take patient's impression, pour model cast. Also note patient's original tooth color/shade.

Step 2 - Articulate cast, make waxup and set pontics as needed (pontics = false tooth) on toothless areas.

Step 3 - Take impression of model cast with built up dentition.

Step 4 - Apply temporary crown material on impression made on step 3. Then with the material flowed onto the impression, apply directly to patient's dentition. Put separating medium (cocoa butter) on patient's teeth beforehand.

Step 5 - Trim and polish temporary crown on patient using carbide burs and rubber polishers. Dab with cotton with alcohol to remove uncured acrylic resin.

Step 6 - Wait for the final restoration, and hope that the temporaries will hold during this waiting period.
