There are many techniques available to provide provisional coverage for teeth while you are fabricating permanent restorations.  The type of provisional needed, condition of the gingiva, desired outcome, and any special circumstances all should influence which technique you choose.  There are three basic techniques we will explore in this text: direct, indirect, and a combination of the two.

The direct provisional technique is where a provisional restoration is made inside the patient’s mouth.  The indirect technique uses a model to fabricate the provisional (outside of the patient’s mouth).  The indirect/direct technique utilizes both techniques.
