The Captek™ coping has a gold, yellow-orange color.
This color provides the most natural color as the background for the porcelain.
Dental dentin has a yellow-orange color naturally; a vital pulp produces a warm red background. The color of the Captek™ coping provides a natural looking crown, which blends with the natural colors of the oral cavity.
Therefore the gold color of the Captek™ coping provides the perfect base for any type of veneering; porcelain, acrylic or composite.
Captek™ has a predictable esthetic result.
Captek™ crowns will not create a dark gingival line around them. The dark shadow seen when using conventional metal copings is a result of oxide formation. Captek™ does not produce any oxides, therefore will not create dark shadowing around it. The Captek™ metal has a goldish color to it, giving a warmer, more pleasant edge to the crown, then conventional metals which are grey in color.
