Tuff-Temp is the first innovation in temporary materials in almost two decades. The proprietary rubberized-urethane chemistry, available only from Pulpdent, provides greater strength and dimensional stability, and a tighter fitting provisional restoration. With Pulpdent Tuff-Temp Resin, temporaries are tough, impact-resistant, and grip the teeth.
Chipping, breaking, debonding, and recementations are minimized or eliminated. Tuff-Temp is designed to grind and powder, producing crisp and accurate margins that do not soften or distort. It does not gum up or clog finishing instruments. Exceptional results can be achieved by trimming with a slow speed acrylic bur, fine grit diamond bur, or finishing and polishing disk system. A fast application of Tuff-Temp Provisional Glaze provides enhanced esthetics and patient satisfaction during temporization.
Tuff-Temp is dual cure. It both self-cures and has a light cure option to produce a final set, full strength restoration on demand. The fast light cure option is also ideal for use with a clear vinyl polysiloxane template. For alterations or smile design, the Tuff-Temp system includes Tuff-Temp Provisional Add-on, a shade-matching, light cure, flowable resin formulated from the Pulpdent’s proprietary rubberized-urethane chemistry.
Tuff-Temp is packaged in a 50 mL automix cartridge that fits into a standard one-to-one gun used for impression materials and in 5-mL syringes. It is available in six popular shades: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1 and Bleach.
