Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns (which are sometimes referred to as Dental Caps or Tooth Caps) are generally used to either improve the appearance of a tooth or in restoring a tooth to its original shape and strength. However, dental crowns should not be used if there are other alternative treatments which can achieve similar results. This is because dental crowns usually require massive tooth structure to be removed in order to properly place them over a natural tooth.

At Bangkok Smile MALO CLINIC, we only want what's the best for you and your precious smile. That's why we aim to provide only the best and latest in dental restoration technology - specifically on dental crowns.

NOBELPROCERA® ALLCERAM - The ultimate indication-based beauty

What is Procera® AllCeram?

Procera® AllCeram is an excellent foundation cap that can support your final dental crown. The fit is very essential and optimized with the use of modern technology. The material, densely sintered ceramic, makes your new tooth both strong and beautiful, giving it a natural appearance between your gums.

The secret behind Procera® AllCeram is its unique combination of strength and beauty. Over the last few years, new technology has given dental porcelain better properties. However, porcelain-coated ceramic copings have neither been strong nor durable enough for widespread use.

Procera® AllCeram is a coping made extremely densely-sintered aluminum oxide. The coping is produced in an industrial process known as the Procera method, which ensures optimal fit, great strength, and non-porosity, while having the ability to transmit light without being transparent.

Due to the strength in its core material, Procera® AllCeram can be used for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth. More and more patients are asking for constructions made of materials not containing metal or other alloys. Procera® AllCeram is made of a bio-compatible material (comparable to Titanium) which minimizes the risk of allergic reactions.

The translucent coping offers remarkable esthetic characteristics. When combined with a Procera® AllCeram Dental Crown, these characteristics are put to their very best advantages. In order to recreate the beauty of natural teeth, the porcelain has been formulated to make the most of the coping's inherent potential. And because it is specially adapted to the coping's translucence and fluorescence, Procera® AllCeram opens an entirely new era in the history of utilizing porcelain in dentistry.
