Metal-Free Crowns ( Procera, CERCON, IPS, LAVA, ZIRCON)
Porcelain Crowns and Biologic Compatibility (Dental Allergies)
We offer new machined / hand-laid porcelain technology that is now available for front teeth is now the first metal-free crown technique that is truly strong enough to be universally recommend for the replacement of crowns or large silver fillings for your back teeth.
This new system, called "Procera", gives you the strength of the traditional gold / porcelain crown (which is how over 95% of all crowns are currently made), while providing the beauty and translucency of porcelain. As with front tooth crowns, the metallic, grayish metal underpinning found in most of today's crowns is replaced by an aero-space porcelain foundation. You've probably seen that unsightly "gray line at the gum" on existing crowns (for yourself or other people) that can be caused by the current mainstream metallic-based technique.
We now have the solution - PROCERA AllCeram. PROCERA AllCeram is a coping made of extremely densesintered aluminum oxide. The coping is produced in an industrial process known as PROCERA method, which ensures optimal fit, great strength, non-porosity and has the ability to transmit light without being transparent.
The secret behind Procera All Ceram is its unique combination of strength and beauty. Over the last few years, new technology has made dental porcelain more practical. Until now, porcelain coated ceramic copings has been neither strong enough nor durable enough for widespread use. Procera All Ceram is translucent giving the tooth a natural appearance. At the same time Procera All Ceram is excellent for concealing underlying surfaces, such as amalgam and root fillings. This ceram is also customized but still industrially produced, ensuring predictable results. You should try quickly in your mouth with minimal adjustments.
Due to the strength in the core material, PROCERA AllCeram can be recommended for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth. More and more patients are asking for constructions made of material not containing metal or other alloys. PROCERA AllCeram is made of bio-compatible material (comparable to Titanium) which minimizes the risk of allergic reactions.
The translucent coping offers remarkable esthetic characteristics. When combined with PROCERA AllCeram Porcelain these characteristics are put to their very best advantage. In order to recreate the beauty of natural teeth, the porcelain has been formulated to make the most of the coping's inherent potential.
Procera Abutment is created by CADD design using the Procera
technique. The scanner is used to create a custom milled implant abutment
that is designed by the dentist and the laboratory for a specific patient's
needs. The data is then transferred by modem to the production plant in
Sweden and the custom Procera Abutment is machined.
Zirconia combines the esthetics of our patients demand with the strength and affordable prices they desire.
Laboratory tests have shown the fracture toughness and flexural strength of zirconia is significantly higher than that of alumina or any other all ceramic. Excellent strength and versatility can be achieved.
Procera Zirconia, made of Yttria Stabilized Zirconium (YZ) has substantial advantages compared to other dental materials: mechanical resistance, biocompatibility and a fracture toughness two times greater than Alumina.
Conventional precious metal ceramics restorations are at 800 MPa or less. Metal ceramics cannot compete with the esthetics of Procera Zirconia. It is capable of being placed anywhere in the mouth and can accommodate 3-4 unit bridges
Procera Zirconia restorations can be inserted using conventional cementing techniques. Bonding is not required.
Benefits of Procera Zirconia
Procera® (Alumina) is composed of a densely sintered high-purity aluminum oxide coping that is manufactured using CAD/CAM technology. The core has the ability to transmit light without being transparent. The secret behind Procera® is its unique combination of strength and beauty.
Extremely low fracture rates have been reported and the restorations serve for many years.
More and more patients are
asking for restorations made of material not containing metal or other
alloys. Procera® is made of a bio-compatible material (comparable
to Titanium) which minimized the risk of allergic reactions.
These are full ceramic crowns and bridges without metal reinforcement. Zircon (synthetic diamond) has exceptional rigidity. This enables us to carry out great restorations with improved mechanical forecast. Zircon is very high melting point ensures perfect stability during the heat treatment of the various ceramic layers. By utilizing Zircon, the crown or bridge will adjust perfectly. Not utilizing metal reinforcement (which the dental technician must usually mask by an opaque ceramic layer) makes it possible to produce crowns with low thickness, thus saving healthy tissue during preparation of teeth. Finally, due to this technique, the aesthetic results are excellent because the light is no longer interrupted by subjacent metal, therefore it can cross the crown and restore the natural appearance to the tooth.
A LAVA Crown is one of the strongest all ceramic crowns available in the world. LAVA crowns are reported to have three times more tensile strength than any other style of all ceramic crown.
To make the external part of your dental crown perfectly esthetic and functional, a layer of quality dental porcelain is fused to the external aspect of your LAVA crown. This adds some translucency, vibrancy, proper shade and color, and gives your new tooth a comfortable texture.
The 3M™ ESPE™ Lava™ Crowns and Bridges system is an innovative CAD/CAM technology using a zirconium oxide base. The esthetics of Lava restorations represent the optimum in all-ceramic systems. Preparations require removal of less tooth structure, and cementation can be accomplished using proven, conventional techniques. Colorable frameworks that are thin and translucent ensure a natural and vital appearance. Lava crowns and bridges provide some of the most durable and esthetic all-ceramic restorations available today. The Zirkonia frameworks are biocompatible and exhibit the highest strength available in all-ceramic restorations.
Lava™ crowns and bridges offer the highest strength restorations to the dental industry.

Cergogold restorations not only look like natural teeth, but they also perform like them! The Cergogold system exhibits smooth surfaces and hardness values resembling those of natural teeth. This type of surface has been proven to abrade the antagonists at a natural rate. As with the Golden Gate alloy range, Cergogold can also be veneered with Duceragold porcelain. Matching the shades of all-ceramic and metal-ceramic restorations in the same patient's mouth is no longer a problem.
METAL CROWNS (Gold, PFM, Captek)
Gold crowns are often the preferred choice when the patient is not overly concerned about their appearance. Gold is extremely pliable making gold crowns a better fit than any other type. The strength and durability of the gold offers a more solid crown that will not chip or crack, which is possible with other types of crown. Gold crowns are normally used in molars, where the forces from chewing and grinding are most prevalent.
Advantages of gold crowns :
Porcelain fused to metal crowns offer a natural appearance with a better fit than a standard porcelain crown. On the down side they have a metal substructure making it difficult to replicate the translucency of natural teeth. It is possible that a darker line will appear at the edge of the crown, near the gum, as it recedes with age.
Advantages of porcelain and metal crowns:
Porcelain fused-to-metal crowns offer a very natural look.
They fit to the tooth very well.
Disadvantages of porcelain and metal crowns:
They have a metal substructure and require an opaque below the porcelain.
In time, a darker line may be visible at the edge of the crown.

A dental bridge is one method to fill a gap created by a missing tooth (or teeth). Dental bridge or pontic is a custom-made false tooth or teeth, that is permanently placed between two healthy teeth, filling in the area left by a missing tooth or teeth. The bridge is held in place by crowns placed on the healthy teeth on each side of space to be filled.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
Types of Dental Bridges
2. Cantilever bridges
Cantilever bridges are usually used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
3. Maryland bridges
Marlyland bridges also called a resin-bonded bridges or a Maryland bonded bridges. Maryland bridges supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to the back of existing teeth.
Types of Dental Bridge Materials
The all porcelain dental bridges and porcelain fused to metal (PFM) dental bridges are tooth colored bridges. PFM dental bridges are usually used to restore back teeth where the forces of chewing and grinding are strongest. All porcelain dental bridges are the most aesthetic and are used almost exclusively for front teeth where the need for strength is not as critical. Gold dental bridges are the most durable and offer the most precise fit. Gold dental bridges does not chip.
The porcelain bridges used at Dental Tourism India International Dental Center include the IPS Empress Esthetics crowns from Ivoclar Vivadent and Procera NobelEsthetics from Nobel Biocare.
Procedure for Dental Bridges Treatment
The course of treatment described here is for traditional bridges, one of several options available at our dental clinic. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
Both the preparation and placement of the temporary bridge as well as the bonding of the permanent bridge may cause some minor tenderness in the area. Some individuals may experience sensitivity in teeth. This sensitivity will disappear gradually over a few days to weeks.
Replacing missing teeth should actually make eating easier but until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.
Postcare Instructions for Dental Bridges
It is important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong as the success of the bridge. The bridge depends on the solid foundation offered by the surrounding teeth.
Care for Dental Bridges
Dental bridges require the same regular and consistent home and professional dental care, as your natural teeth to prevent decay at the tooth-dental crown junction. To provide optimum longevity for your restorations, please follow the home care tips below:
