The role of dental restorations used for provisional and indirect restorative procedures has changed dramatically in the past several years. These restorations are no longer regarded as temporary restorations but as provisional restorations with distinct functions and purposes. Provisional restorations have become a vital diagnostic and assessment tool to evaluate function color, shape, contour, occlusion, periodontal response, implant healing, and overall esthetics. In addition, an accurate fit and margination are essential to ensure and maintain pulpal health.
