Summary:

Over the past decade, direct-to-consumer marketing regarding advances in esthetic dentistry has created a greater demand for smile transformations than ever before. The emphasis has changed from patients seeking one or two restorations to patients desiring a whole-mouth reconstruction, which may involve eight to 12 restorations, all in an effort to dramatically change their smiles.

One of the best ways to gain patient acceptance of the new smile is to place provisional restorations that mimic the final ceramic restoration in both tooth form and color.
