Consisting of 88 percent pure gold and 9 percent platinum, Captek provides the biocompatibility of a high noble alloy while testing significantly lower in bacteria than natural tooth surfaces in the same mouth. As the gold color of Captek reflects through the porcelain, the restoration takes on a lifelike appearance, blending with natural dentition while eliminating unsightly gray margins.
Captek can be used for all single unit crowns and bridges with up to 2 pontics. Captek can be used when reduction of the tooth may be limited. Captek can be used when periodontal health is a concern and when biocompatibility is a concern.
