Ceramic is fused to 22kt Captek gold, producing esthetics that rival all-ceramic restorations. Captek yields impressively high strength and density, which makes it ideal for long-span bridges and implants.
Captek is indicated for single-unit crowns and bridges with up to 2 pontics. It may also be prescribed for cantilever bridges, bruxers, and full-arch cases. It is highly esthetic and can be used when reduction of the tooth may be limited.
