Crowns may be indicated to restore teeth where there is substantial tooth substance loss from caries or trauma, but it is not always appropriate to place the substantive restoration without reviewing the prognosis of the tooth under treatment for a time. In such cases, the placement of a long-term provisional restoration may be indicated.This paper describes the use of a recently-introduced, novel, resin-composite crown in such situations. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: A crown which is able to be used as a long-term provisional may be a useful clinical technique for situations where the prognosis of a tooth is uncertain, and/or when the personal circumstances of the patient preclude a conventional indirect restoration.
