A peace of wax was used to approximate size of the Dentapreg PFU strip needed. Cutting doesn't require any special cutter, just regular scissors. The teeth were then etched and bond was applied. Flowable composite was applied and the Dentapreg PFU strip was placed into this layer of composite and light cured.

Building the pontic. Ovate pontic design was chosen to allow for best healing around the pontic, therefore allowing predictable tissue health due to the convex contours as the floss passes between the tissue and the pontic. A hint is to use like a periosteal elevator or cupped wax instrument to push back the rubber dam on the gingival side and compress the tissue as you place resin on the underside of the pontic.

Rubber dam removed, final contour and polish. This case was done over 2 years ago and even though it was presented as provisional, there is no reason to believe it will not last quite a long time. Great affordable alternative to bridge or implant, abutment and crown.
