A provisional restoration must protect the prepared tooth, restore form and function which should be esthetically acceptable. Sometimes, they are made to assess the outcome of a specific therapy for definitive prosthesis. Hence, understanding the properties, manipulation methods, and uses of provisional restorative materials for fixed partial denture is essential for all dentists. The objective of the study was to assess the recent advancement in provisional restorative materials for dental prosthesis available now. Literature search on PubMed and Google Scholar was done from January 1965 to March 2022 using the keywords such as provisional and interim restorative materials. In addition, hand search was done through refereed dental journals for 2000 to 2022. Nanoparticle-reinforced provisional restorative materials for any fixed dental prosthesis had better mechanical properties compared to conventional provisional materials available in the market. Digitally fabricated provisional materials eliminate the impression and the laboratory fabrication procedures, so that it consumes less time for fabrication.
