A review of these criteria and how to meet them will provide an understanding on how to provide better provisionals that will mimic the final restorations. The provisional restorations can also be utilized to guide the esthetics of the final restorations, working out the length and position of the teeth to act as a blueprint for the laboratory. Simple techniques will be discussed for fabrication of provisionals for single units, bridges and temporization of veneers.
