Product Features

Access Crown has a fast setting time, yet adequate working time for most provisional situations. Consultants reported that the available shades satisfied clinical expectations and the esthetics were very good. The material handles well, leaving little flash on the adjacent teeth. It sets hard with no noticeable shrinkage and has a high resistance to fracture.

Clinical Tips

  • Work very quickly for multiple-unit cases.
