Can I repair the margins of SNAP temps with a Bis-acryl temporary material such as Parkell’s SmarTemp™?


Bis-acryl products are composite materials. We, therefore, do not recommend using them for repairs to SNAP temporary restorations. As is the case with light-cure composites, the long-term possibility of a successful repair of a SNAP temporary restoration with a bis-acryl product is unlikely. To minimize the likelihood of future problems, repairs should be made utilizing the same material that was used when the temporary was fabricated.
