I had the opportunity to complete two quite large core buildups on these compromised teeth before fabricating my first-ever “bur-carved” provisionals from Ultradent Expertemp. Some GC Optiglaze Color tints were used to characterize the surface. The margin fit is superb. It has an impressive compressive strength similar to enamel at 370MPa and a flexural strength acceptably at 124MPa, allowing these “provisional” crowns to be even considered in transitional bonding cases where they are cemented permanantly. I shouldn’t have accidentally smeared the provisional cement over the tooth. Hard to get off.

Have a great afternoon,
