“Imprint 4 Preliminary has already proven itself to be efficient and reliable,” said Dr. Jeff Blank of Carolina Smile Center in Fort Mill, S.C. “Now, with availability in the cartridge delivery system, I will have even more flexibility to quickly create great-fitting temporaries in any operatory in my practice.”

Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS impression material makes creating precise provisionals a simple process. First, the dentist captures the preliminary impression, with a setting time as short as 90 seconds using the super quick version of the material. Then, the impression is filled with 3M™ ESPE™ Protemp™ Plus Temporization Material and inserted in the mouth. After five minutes, the matrix can be removed to reveal a smooth surface that needs no polishing. Just a quick wipe with alcohol reveals the shine.

“The Imprint 4 family makes impression-taking super fast and super accurate,” said Dr. James Braun of Saginaw, Mich. “It’s great to now have these reliable options for both preliminary and final impressions.”
