The important role of provisional restorations is often overlooked. This may be because they are left until the end of an appointment when time for construction is short or because they generally do not need to last for long. However, not only can good provisional restorations help produce better final restorations, they can also save a lot of time and expense at subsequent appointments. In fact time spent in their construction will be more than repaid in time saved doing additional procedures, adjustments and remakes later on.
