CAPTEK is an advanced metallurgic technology for producing high hold metal substructures for crowns and bridges. It is an internally reinforced gold material that exhibits both the color and workability, and nobility of pure gold along with the strength and stability of the platinum/palladium family of cast alloy.

CAPTEK is an advanced metallurgic technology that employs capillary action to produce precision fitting
copings for all conventional crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays. Benefits include outstanding aesthetics, high
biocompatibility, exceptional strength and excellent bond capabilities.

CAPTEK is a composite metal alloy, comprising 88% gold and 9% platinum group metals, exhibiting the
colour, workability and nobility of pure gold along with the strength and stability of the platinum/palladium family
of cast alloys.

As the CAPTEK coping is fired, molecular particles join to create a three-dimensional network of capillaries, in
the same physical phenomenon that brings water from the roots to the leaves of a tree. This highly dense,
capillaceous coping is then ready for porcelain application.

This is the reason that we have chosen CAPTEK as the crown of choice for our patients.

"CAPTEK provides excellent esthetics possibly even superior to all ceramic crowns. The need for a porcelain butt margin is eliminated because the margins can be finished fown to a razor edge with no distortion or grey shadows.
Alvin Fillastre D.D.S. Lakeland FL

"The CAPTEK crown offers the 'all porcelain crown cosmenics' with the porcelain fused to metal strength and fit...the best of both worlds. Stronger, more life-like cosmetics...
Andrew W. Greenberg D.D.S. Orlando FL

CAPTEK is the answer for the most challenging situation because of its strength and excellent esthetics.

The gold color of the CAPTEK understructure enhances esthetics because of its gold color. The pictue below is of the metal understructure for a single crown.

The comparison below of a traditional porcelain crown compared to the traditional porcelain to metal crown speaks for itself.

  • Superior esthetics
  • Precision fit
  • Excellent strength
