The days of being “just” a dental assistant are gone.  As we continually strive to learn new things and improve our skills, the role of a dental assistant changes. In many states, laws concerning dental assistants are changing and the dental assistant is now able to perform more, such as fabricating provisional crowns and bridges.  With this growth comes new responsibilities.

This course is designed to teach dental assistants how to fabricate provisional crowns or bridges.  The term provisional also can refer to an interim or temporary restoration.  Learning the techniques, materials, and procedures should give you a better understanding of what it takes to fabricate a provisional restoration.

Laws and regulations concerning dental assistant duties vary from state to state.  In many states fabricating and seating provisional crowns or bridges could be considered an expanded function and additional state approved education may be required.  Always refer to the State Dental Practice Act before performing any of these functions.
