Our Screw-Retained One Piece Implant Crowns eliminate one of the leading causes for implant failure, which is caused by excess cement left below the margin during oral surgery. We have a quality selection of screw-retained crowns available, including Zirconia, IPS e.max®, PFZ, PFM, and Noble. Easily retrieved for maintenance, screw-retained crowns provide a number of clinical benefits to the doctor and the patient.
