Q: Do provisionals created using Inspire require polishing?
A: Inspire does not need to be polished, especially for posterior applications; however, polishing does have the advantage of adding a higher esthetic value for anterior teeth, as well as lessening plaque accumulation over the temporization period.

Q: What type of gun should I use to dispense Inspire?
A: Inspire is used in a standard 10:1 gun.
Q: Is Inspire stackable?
No, Inspire is NOT stackable.
Q: How can I prevent air bubbles in my temps?
