With Protemp™ 4 Temporisation Material 3M ESPE has set another milestone in temporary crown and bridge materials. 3M ESPE has applied its expertise in nanotechnology to create the first bis-acrylic composite with a new g
Reliably strong temporaries through record-breaking toughness.
In vitro tests prove Protemp™ 4 Temporisation Material to be tougher than all other leading automix bis-acrylic temporisation materials. Read more about reliably tough temporaries.
Patients constantly put their temporaries to the test. Using Protemp 4 material can help reduce the number of fractured temporaries and patient recalls.
Unmatched fracture resistance and therefore less likely to break than other automix bis-acrylic temporisation materials
Outstanding mechanical and compressive strength
State-of-the-art marginal integrity and precision fit
Suitable for long-term temporaries
Material toughness/fracture work
(resistance of material to fracture)

Splendid aesthetics and improved patient comfort.
Your patients will enjoy the natural-looking polish, the smooth feel and the high overall wearing comfort of a temporary made with Protemp 4 temporisation material. Read more about patient-pleasing aesthetics.
Thanks to fluorescent pigments, Protemp 4 temporaries look naturally beautiful in various lighting conditions – even in challenging UV light. Comparing the fluorescence of temporisation materials under ultraviolet light shows Protemp™ 4 Temporisation Material looks almost the same as natural teeth.

s a result of its enhanced surface quality, Protemp™ 4 Temporisation Material resists staining and holds colour better than all other leading materials tested. After 3 days immersed in coffee at 36 degree Celsius, the bridge made with Protemp 4 material shows the least colour change.

Due to the smooth surface of Protemp 4 temporisation material, patients have a high wearing comfort with Protemp 4 temporaries. Through its excellent surface quality properties plaque can be easily removed from Protemp 4 material – as a 3M ESPE in vitro experiment showed. In this experiment Protemp 4 material was incubated for 48 hours in full human saliva for plaque growth and then cleaned with tooth paste (Aronal®) on an electrical tooth brush (Oral-B® Professional Care® 5000) for 5 seconds.
A faster procedure and brilliant results without polishing or glazing
With easy-to-use Protemp™ 4 Temporisation Material you will experience a more convenient and even more time-saving procedure. Read more.
Compared to competitive temporary materials, Protemp 4 Temporisation material provides a much thinner smear layer that can easily be removed and therefore reduces your working time significantly. Plus, 3M ESPE´s unique nanotechnology ensures a smooth surface right from the beginning, as below AFM topography pictures show. Just wiping off with ethanol will get the surface glossy and shiny immediately, making the whole procedure faster as the polishing and glaze working step is no longer required.
