Nobel Biocare offers coloured zirconia

New Products

Nobel Biocare has expanded its versatile treatment portfolio of all-ceramic solutions with three new shades of Procera® Crown Zirconia.

With Procera, general and restorative dental professionals can apply an allceramic solution on every natural-tooth and implant restoration. Procera allceramic solutions match the versatility and strength of PFM, but provide superior metal-free aesthetics.

Every Procera Crown Zirconia features exceptional flexural strength, excellent marginal fit, and is placed using traditional techniques.

The aesthetic demands of patients is on the rise and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) cannot deliver the long-term aesthetic results that Procera all-ceramic restorations provide.

With Procera, patients benefit from better fitting, stronger, and more natural-looking, beautiful aesthetics, without the dentist sacrificing profitability and efficiency.

Procera offers dentists - on-demand - the most complete range of individualized prosthetics available in the market for both natural-tooth and implant restorations: from single crowns, bridges (up to 14 teeth), and laminates to implant bridges and customized abutments.

Procera products are produced in the metal-free, all-ceramic materials: Procera Alumina and Procera Zirconia. Dentists receive peace-of-mind, because all Procera materials have been thoroughly tested - over 15 years of documentation exists - in the laboratory and in multicentre studies. Moreover, Procera is well proven, having produced more than eight million restorations.

"Having been in CAD/CAM dentistry longer than any of our competitors, we understand the needs of the dentist and patient better," said Dr Robert Gottlander, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing and Products for Nobel Biocare. "In turn, we provide only those products and services that support the efficiency and profitability of dentists."

Strength and fit

All-ceramic products received from a Nobel Biocare production facility are of the highest precision and perfect individual fit. Following milling and sintering, copings demonstrate marginal and internal fits of less than 40 microns. This level of precision allows for accurate try-ins and minimizes the likelihood of excess cement around the site.

Dentists can integrate the beauty of allceramic Procera aesthetics seamlessly into current dental practices, because no change in current routines is necessary. Every Procera product follows conventional preparation and cementation techniques.

Dentists who place and order Procera products are supported by an expansive worldwide network. In additional to the three automated Procera production facilities, there are 4,000 Procera laboratories in 75 countries offering support.
