Alternative Fabrication Method for Chairside Fiber-Reinforced Composite Resin Provisional Fixed Partial Dentures

Ahmed Ballo, BDS, PhD/Pekka Vallittu, DDS, PhD

PMID: 21909486

A high level of clinical skill is required for fabricating a provisional fixed partial denture with fiber-reinforced composite resin (FRC) using either the direct or chairside technique. The freehand approach to restoring missing teeth represents a challenge to the clinician, particularly when shaping and finishing a hygienic pontic. This technical report describes a simplified method for chairside fabrication of a fixed dental prosthesis with FRC. It is based on using a translucent template to guide the buildup procedure and to ensure optimal anatomy and function. Int J Prosthodont 2011;24:453456.
