Procera® is a unique system from Nobel Biocare for the fabrication of esthetic and functional dental restorations.
Procera® offers you the optimal restorative system, including crowns, laminates, and bridges, for all indications and anywhere in the mouth. The combination of beauty and strength gives you a simple and predictable clinical procedure, excellent esthetic results and improved long-term performance.
No PFM ‘gray lines’ ever
With metal ceramic, soft tissue around the tooth can recede, over time, revealing the metal underneath as ugly gray lines. This simply can’t happen with Procera® because they are metal-free.
Procera® all-ceramic solutions are completely tissue-friendly. Your crown, bridge or veneer (laminate) integrates beautifully with its surroundings, encouraging gum to grow back up to the tooth, as it would naturally. And because they are bio-compatible, there are no allergic reactions, no sensitivity to temperature and no impact on taste.
Procera® solutions are precision-engineered in state of the art production facilities. And they fit so well you will forget they are there.
Procera® uses a unique system to subtly match your real tooth’s color and translucency so they’re almost impossible to tell apart from real teeth.
