Abstract

The Procera AllCeram system is indicated for manufacturing all-ceramic crowns for single-tooth restorations in the anterior and posterior regions. In addition, it is possible to create metal-free superstructures on CeraOne abutments from the Brånemark implant system or crowns on individually prepared aluminum oxide abutments (CerAdapt). The Procera copings, which are manufactured using computer-aided design/manufacturing technology, are characterized by very good mechanical properties. Ceramic veneers tailored to the copings offer excellent esthetics, favorable abrasion behavior, and an ideal surface structure for non-inflammatory apposition of the periodontal or periimplant tissues. The present article offers an overview of previous scientific studies, describes clinical and laboratory procedures, and presents case reports.
