Template® is an ultra-quick setting (30 seconds), ultra-accurate silicone matrix material specially designed for provisional fabrication. Template flows into embrasure areas and into the finest morphology to capture superior detail, significantly reducing finishing time.

Provisional Crown Technique

Crown to be temporized.
Template has ideal flow without slumping.
Inspire Esthetic Provisional Composite is extruded into the Template matrix. Template captures sharp marginal and occlusal detail and becomes rigid.
Template’s accuracy results in minimal flash and finishing time.
Inspire is strong, dense, and easy to finish (pre-polish shown).
In seconds, Inspire can be polished to an ultra-esthetic finish.
Template Lingual Matrix Technique

Initial case showing tooth #9 fractured.
After a mock-up restoration the lingual and incisal surfaces were captured by a thick layer of Template.
After tooth preparation, etching, and bonding agent applied and light-cured, a nano-filled composite was packed against Template matrix to form the lingual shelf.
Dentin layer of a nano-filled composite was used to replicate the “dentin” portion of the restoration.
Final layer of microfill composite (enamel shade) was placed to complete the restoration, cured, then polished.

To fabricate the temporary matrix and/or to form a lingual matrix for the composite layering technique.
Template has better flowability which means that it can capture highly defined hard tissue
detail, resulting in greater accuracy than putty or bite registration (and greater accuracy means less adjusting and finishing time required). Furthermore, Template’s working time and set time is much faster than putty and sets quite hard, but not brittle like bite registration can be.
Yes, Template is an excellent material for the lingual matrix technique. When you use Template for the lingual matrix technique, you can pre-shape and refine the lingual surface while you’re restoring the tooth, leaving only the polishing step to complete the restoration.
Yes, Template can be stored for use in the case of a fractured temporary.
