If I am allergic to metals, will I be allergic to Captek?
Traditional crowns include impurities that can irritate gums and cause systemic sensitivities. In contrast, Captek only uses the purest forms of noble metals and is hypo allergenic. Unlike older technologies, Captek does not form dark oxides that can cause inflammation and dark & receding gums. In fact, Captek is the only dental material shown to actually improve periodontal health.
How do I know my doctor is actually providing Captek?
Captek can only be provided by Captek trained and Certified Dental Laboratories. We provide each Certified Laboratory with identification tags, Identalloy Stickers, that inform your doctor the product being provided is genuine Certified Captek.
Is Captek healthier than other types of Crowns?
Captek is the only dental material that actually promotes healthy gums. Research has shown that Captek fits better than other materials and doesn’t corrode like traditional metals with porcelain. When a crown doesn’t fit well it is like having spurs sticking into the gums. Captek eliminates that. Corrosion can be even worse, often leading to inflammation and gum recession. Corrosion causes toxic byproducts to migrate into the gums and bacterial plaque to hide in corroded surfaces. Captek never corrodes and produces no byproducts, remaining pure for life. The result is a decrease in bacterial plaque and healthier gums.
How does Captek compare to All ceramic esthetics?
Captek offers complete color control, no matter the underlying tooth structure.
Warm gold color mimics the vitality of living tooth structures, whereas ceramic cores are too transparent and grayish, or too white, which grossly increases the chroma.
Patented reflective surface refracts and reflects light. This ability to capture and scatter reflected light adds a superior vitality and blending in effect
Captek covers dark roots or tooth structure. Captek can give beautiful esthetics regardless of the color of the abutment, tooth or root.
Captek supports beautiful crown color as well as the tissue color and health.
