The Chairside Fabrication of a Provisional Crown for a Single Tooth Implant

A Peer-Reviewed Publication Written by Ian Shuman, DDS, MAGD, AFAAID


Whether the intent is a delayed or immediate implant restoration, a dental implant may require a provisional crown. This can be accomplished in the laboratory or chairside. When creating a chairside provisional crown, the practitioner has control over the planned soft tissue growth and therefore the health of the implant and periodontium. This course describes and illustrates the steps needed to fabricate a chairside provisional crown for an anterior single tooth implant.
