Procera is a unique CAD/CAM technology system for the fabrication of esthetic and functional dental restorations. There’s a seamless solution for every indication, whether it’s crowns, bridges, or implant abutments. The versatility of the Procera system allows you to incorporate it into your practice without changing your PFM habits.
Using CAD/CAM technology, cores of densely-sintered alumina or zirconia are produced with high accuracy. The unique material properties of Procera restorations enable easy and predictable clinical results with excellent esthetics. Procera restorations, in conjunction with the NobelRondo porcelain system, are translucent, giving the tooth a natural appearance. At the same time, Procera is excellent for concealing dark underlying surfaces, such as amalgam, post & cores and root fillings.
Procera Zirconia offers the combination of beauty and strength with predictable clinical procdures, excellent esthetic results and improved long-term performance. Procera Zirconia’s proven strength comes from a precision milled solid piece of Zirconia based on the latest scanning, CAD/CAM and production technology offering crowns, bridges and implant abutments.
