    Background: Temporization following tooth preparation is mandatory to ensure tooth stability and therefore to prevent tooth movement and additional treatment. It enables to maintain proper occlusal and proximal contacts to promote patient comfort and maintain their tooth position. The interim covering for a tooth after its preparation is mandatory to maintain tooth vitality. This provides security and comfort for the patients during the fabrication of the final restorations. Aim: The aim of the survey is to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) of temporization followed by tooth preparation among the Indian dental practitioners. Study Design: The study was conducted in April 2019. It was conducted among the Indian dental practitioners to evaluate their KAP of preferring temporary crowns after tooth preparation in their general dental practice. A questionnaire survey was formed and sent to general dental practitioners all over India. All the questions are close-ended, which takes 3–5 min to fill up. We got back 85 responses from dentists. All the data collected were subjected to elicit in the form of detailed pie charts. Results: Almost all the doctors felt that temporization is an important step in the process of fixed prosthesis. All of them would prefer to fabricate in an indirect method. Dentists would like to give the crowns for a week before the permanent cementation, and many of them are capable of fabricating in 1 h and rest in 1/2 day. Conclusion: All fields of human activity have been affected by great advances of technological developments. As a matter of fact, when a patient looks for a dentist, it is to improve specifically esthetics because in a highly competitive and modern society a young, beautiful and natural appearance is very important for success.
