Dental Crafters offers two different types of implant crowns including cement retained and screw retained. Our screw retained implant crowns include lingual and occlusal screw.
A cement retained crown or bridge is a restoration fabricated over the top of an abutment. It is then fixed to the abutment by cement. Some advantages of a cement retained crown are unmatched esthetics, simplicity of the technique, and complete passivity when a cemented restoration is placed on the implant. The crown can be produced from a choice of materials including N.Dura, N.Dura Facial Cutback, E.max®, E.max® Facial Cutback, PFM, and Lava™.
A screw retained crown or bridge is fabricated in such a way that a hole is present on the lingual and/or occlusal surface. The hole allows for the restoration to be attached directly to the implant by way of a fixation screw. During the life of the implant, the clinician may need to remove the restoration for hygiene, repairs, or abutment screw tightening. The screw retained design makes all of these procedures easily achievable.
The lingual crown is only available for PFM.
The occlusal screw is available for N.Dura, N.Dura Facial Cutback, E.max®, E.max® Facial Cutback, PFM, and Lava™.
