Composite Resin Formula
The innovative composite chemistry of TempSpan® C&B Material offers several features and benefits over traditional auto-mix provisional materials. The unique, acrylic-free, resin-based formulation of TempSpan® C&B Material provides outstanding physical properties to ensure reliable performance for both single unit restorations and multi-unit bridges. Because of its composite formulation, provisional restorations made with TempSpan® C&B Material can be easily repaired or touched up with flowable composites such as Pentron Clinical’s Flow-It™ ALC™ Flowable Composite. Supplied in a 50ml, auto-mix 1:1 ratio delivery system, TempSpan® C&B Material enables you to use your standard impression material gun.
- Dual cure formulation for intra-oral or extra-oral polymerization reduces chair time.
- Outstanding physical properties ensure durable provisional restorations.

TempSpan® Temporary C&B FAQ:
Q. Why is TempSpan C&B material dual-cure?
A. This feature has been added to TempSpan C&B material to save time when making provisionals. As a resin composite, TempSpan C&B material can be light cured to speed the provisional procedure. Use TempSpan Clear Matrix Material with a clear impression tray (or sideless triple tray) to light cure TempSpan C&B material right through the matrix material.
Q. What gun does TempSpan C&B material fit into?
A. TempSpan C&B material will fit into a standard DS50 1:1/2:1 gun. This is the most common gun found in the dental office and is frequently used with most impression materials, including Correct Plus® impression material.
Q. How can I repair or add to TempSpan C&B material?
A. TempSpan C&B material can be added to or repaired with Flow-It® ALC™ flowable composite.
Q. Is TempSpan C&B material supposed to feel slightly sticky when I am done making my provisional?
A. TempSpan C&B material, like most other temporary materials, has an oxygen inhibited layer present when the material is cured. This is a normal condition of the material. To minimize the oxygen inhibited layer, use TempSpan Clear Matrix Material and light cure the C&B material intra-orally or extra-orally. Fabricating the provisional in a clear matrix will not only reduce the oxygen inhibited layer, but can also improve the physical properties of the provisional.
Q. Should TempSpan C&B material be stored in the refrigerator?
A. TempSpan C&B material requires refrigeration 36°-55° F (2°-13° C) when not in use for long periods of time. The material should be used at room temperature.
Q. What temporary cement can be used with the TempSpan material?
A. We highly recommend using TempSpan Transparent Temporary Cement or other non-eugenol temporary cements for bonding compatibility.
Q. How many units can be made from one cartridge of TempSpan C&B material?
A. You can make approximately 40 single units with one cartridge of TempSpan C&B material.
Q. How many shades of TempSpan C&B material are offered?
A. There are 7 shades available in the TempSpan C&B material product line: A0, A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, and C2.
