Degudent® LS is a high noble alloy with 73.1% gold, 5.8% palladium and 16% silver. Degudent® LS is a micro-fine, extra-hard alloy suitable for MOD's, single crowns, long span bridgework, milled restorations in conjunction with precision attachments, partial dentures and implant superstructures. Degudent® LS displays a golden color and can be veneered with traditional resins, as well as, Duceragold® Porcelain.
Captek is an advanced metallurgical technology for producing high gold content, yellow metal substructures. This 22-karat gold substructure offers the warm golden color of electroformed copings with the strength and stability of a platinum-palladium alloy. So strong in fact, that this material is equally suitable for both single crowns and bridges.
Captek has a unique metallurgical structure called a "dual phase interpenetrating composite." When combined with an electrolyte (saliva), a very small electrical charge results. Researchers are calling this a "bacteriostatic effect," and it is reported to repel plaque and bacteria.
We offer our Captek restorations in two configurations. As a coping only, or as a finished porcelain crown. Select either low-fusing or high-fusing ceramics.
Our standard Captek crown is made using Ceramco II porcelain with characterized opaque and a three-layer build up. Our premium Captek crown utilizes Vita Omega 900 low fusing porcelain in a four-layer build up. Both restorations provide outstanding results that will rival all-ceramic crowns; yet they can be cemented in a conventional manner.
