TYPES OF CROWN & BRIDGES

Metal Free Crowns

Metal Free Procera Crowns

All metal-free crowns are porcelain crowns. The Procera all ceramic crowns used by us are designed using unique, high-precision approach so as to produce natural-looking ceramic prostheses and custom abutments. Since these crowns are rated for being 99% biologically compatible, we prefer using these with teeth and implants.

By using the ‘Procera’ system, we are able to restore the beauty and transparency of porcelain while maintaining the strength of traditional gold or porcelain crown. To add to the strength of the crown, the coping is made using dense-sintered aluminum oxide with high bio-compatibility and purity. In the process, the Procera Abutment is created using CADD design so that the output is a custom milled implant abutment custom designed for you. Finally, the custom Procera Abutment is machined for your special need at the production plant in Sweden.

By using this advanced ‘Procera’ technology, the patients get their crowns with optimal fit, great strength and non-porosity. Yet, one of the most ignored aspects of dental treatment is that people generally tend to ignore the skill of the dentist. By combining it with PROCERA AllCeram Porcelain, the risk of allergic aggravations is minimized. Moreover, these crowns have the ability to transmit light without being transparent.

The role of a dentist is very crucial in whatever treatment you take, and is as important as the type of dental crown which is being used in treatment.

Metal Free Procera Alumina Crowns

Procera (Alumina) crown is made by a densely sintered aluminum oxide coping of high-purity. This is manufactured using CAD / CAM technology and offers an amazing combination of strength and aesthetics. The strength of Alumina results in extremely low fracture rates. However, the Metal Free Procera Alumina Crowns are used for single crowns only in the anterior region of the mouth. These alumina restorations can stand intact for several years. Yet, a large number of patients prefer to opt for restorations made of material and not containing metal or other alloys. The most preferred restorations are done using bio-compatible material which poses minimal risk of allergic reactions.

Metal Free Procera Zirconia Crowns

Procera Zirconia initally was introduced as a solution to concerns related to posterior strength. Zircon, a synthetic diamond, brings along exceptional rigidity. This strength makes Zirconia crowns great restorations with improved mechanical forecast. While undergoing the heat treatment of the various ceramic layers, Zircon exhibits perfect stability because of its high melting point. Since it does not utilize metal reinforcement, the crowns are produced with low thickness. This helps in saving the healthy tissue while doing the preparation of teeth. The aesthetic appearance remains excellent as the subjacent metal does not interrupt the light. Biocompatibility, transparency and close resemblance with natural tooth and strength makes Zirconia a good consideration. These Zircon crowns can be easily used in both anterior and posterior applications. In addition, it also finds use when considering long-span fixed partial dentures.
