Abstract

Provisional restorations are fabricated after tooth preparation, to be used till the time the permanent restoration can be cemented or for other reasons. Provisional restorations when prepared for multiple adjacent teeth, leave behind unaesthetic spaces after segregation. This paper is an attempt to describe a technique using vacuum formed template to segregate multiple provisional crowns without creating unaesthetic spaces. A comparison of the interdental spaces created with the above technique and the conventional over impression technique using stereomicroscope was done. Lab work was carried out by technicians who were not aware of the experiment.
