Smiling with Self-Confidence While Wearing a Temporary
Žujić, Velimir
Particularly in the case of complex treatments, dental professionals sometimes tend to fail to recognize the importance of the temporary restoration, even though it assumes an important function in the treatment process. Apart from protecting the prepared teeth from infections and chemical and thermal influences, this also includes stabilizing the prepared teeth within the dental arch, securing the jaw relation as well as restoring, maintaining or correcting the function, phonetics, esthetics and shape. From a patient's point of view, the esthetic appearance of the temporary restoration is an important requirement, as they want to participate in social activities and smile with self-confidence also while wearing an intermediate restoration. Thanks to modern materials, this requirement can be met today.
