Protemp™ Plus Temporization Material

A Bis-Arcylic Temporization Material Enhanced With Nanotechnology

Introduction

Protemp Plus Temporization Material by 3M ESPE is a bis-arcylic temporization material enhanced with nanotechnology that produces a smooth, glossy surface by simply cleaning the temporary with alcohol. The material comes in 5 florescent shades A1, A2, A3 B3 and Bleach. It is indicated for short or long-term temporization of single and multiple unit crowns, veneers, bridges, inlays and onlays.

Conclusion

CPS review team felt the material was a significant positive shift compared to the previous material by 3M ESPE. The properties of the material allowed for a shiny surface brought to life by wiping with alcohol gauze. When used for anterior provisionals, we found no further polishing was needed for the facial surfaces. If margins were trimmed, however, polishing was needed. Trimming of the material was easier due to the hardness of the new formula. Shades were lighter that noted by the manufacturer, but no complaints from any patients were noted.
