Abstract

Many principles guide preparation and fitting of provisional restorations. Their importance as a diagnostic tool is considered. Aesthetic, phonetic, functional, parafunctional and dysfunctional factors after evaluation in the provisional restorations have to be transferred to the master cast to incorporate them into the final restoration. A method for transferring morphology of provisional restorations to the master cast through preparation of a wax analogue fixed partial denture is presented. This method is precise, practical, suitable for most rehabilitation cases, and not clinically time‐consuming since most stages are carried out in the dental laboratory.
