  • Excellent aesthetics: colour stability, translucency, and natural fluorescence.

Considerations

  • Maximum wear time: six months.
  • Maximum span: three pontics.
  • Ideal design and perfect fit.
  • Porosion-free and strong.
  • Extremely thin (0,5 mm) wall thickness.
  • Easy to reline.
  • No moisture absorption or swelling.

Where there are longer interim stages between preparation and final restoration, the digitally designed (Computer Aided Design) synthetic resin provisional restorations provides an excellent solution.

Why Acrylic temporary crown/bridge?

The temporary restorations are milled from a solid disc of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), based on a conventional (alginate) impression or an intraoral scan. The industrial polymerisation of the synthetic resin disc and the extremely accurate, computer-controlled milling technique offer a temporary restoration that is far superior to conventional products using powder-liquids or chairside polymerisation.
