Share Abstract:

PROCERA: A new way to achieve an all-ceramic crown


Pages: 285-296
PMID: 9693647

The Procera System embraces the concept of comupter-assisted design and computer-assisted machining to fabricate an al-ceramic crown composed of a densely sintered, high-purity aluminum oxide coping combined with a compatible veneering porcelain. Strength, precision of fit, color stability, cementation, and wear characteristics are among the many factors that concern clinicians when fabricating all-ceramic restorations with this new crown system. This article presents, in summary form, the data from the many studies on Procera AllCeram crowns that have been conducted at clinical and laboratory centers around the world. The evidence reported in these studi es clearly demonstrates that the Procera AllCeram crown represents a combination of computer technology and creativity for which a positive prognosis can be made. Today its application is restricted to single crowns; however, with continued development, multiple unit all-ceramic anterior and posterior fixed partial dentures are clearly in the future.
