Teeth prepared for partial or full-coverage restorations must be protected and stabilized with provisional restorations that reproduce the form and function of the fi nal restoration. Provisional treatment may also provide an important tool for the management of patients, as a common perception of the treatment outcome and respective limitations can be identifi ed. It is therefore imperative to fabricate high-quality provisional restorations to achieve a successful treatment. This chapter will focus on current materials for provisional restorations, their advantages and limitations.
