Captek Nano is the contemporary gold PFM of choice. It is a metal-ceramic restoration that has many advantages over traditional PFM’s. The warmth of the underlying gold-colored, precious metal coping enhances the vitality of the bake-on porcelains and yields pleasing esthetic results even with conservative tooth reduction.
The unique structure of the Captek (capillary technology) “composite metal” is the core reason this restoration’s esthetic qualities are matched with strength, versatility and plaque resistance. Internally, a uniquely designed skeleton of strong, stable platinum/palladium particles support the yellow gold, providing proven strength and durability. Clinically proven to reduce plaque and bacteria in the sulcus, Captek’s oxide-free, warm gold color eliminates dark margins and produces a PFM restoration that looks vital and blends in naturally.
