Q. Can I use TempSpan CMT temporary cement to bond a temporary crown to a resin core?
A. Yes, just make sure to apply a very thin coat of anesthetic gel, petroleum jelly, or glycerin to prevent TempSpan CMT temporary cement from adhering to the resin core build-up.

Q. I noticed a thin black film when I removed my temporary crown. What causes this?
A. A thin black film can form when components within the TempSpan CMT temporary cement react with epinephrine or astringent, causing an iron oxide reaction to occur and leave a thin black film. To prevent this, rinse the prep site with plenty of water and air dry very well before applying TempSpan CMT cement.
