A technique is described for fabricating autopolymerizing acrylic resin copings for CeraOne provisional restorations. This method has the advantage of providing a chemical bond rather than only a bond between the mechanical coping and the relined provisional crown, as is the case when using the provisional components supplied by the manufacturer. The technique describes provisionalization at the time of stage II surgery. This type of coping can also be used after a period of soft tissue healing when a healing abutment is employed. The benefits of the procedure include increased patient satisfaction and reduced chair time for repairs.
