Figaro Crowns Outperformed the Competitors in ALL Strength Tests

 

PATIENT & PROVIDER SAFETY

Our meticulous selection process of materials included research of advances made in medical and dental materials.  Throughout our process, we evaluated and hand-selected the materials that provided the highest level of safety and minimized risk for both patients and providers.

Figaro Crowns’ materials are:

  • Biocompatible – comprised of the same material currently used in pacemakers
  • Strong - created for superior strength to withstand grinding and chewing bite force
  • Safe - thoughtfully designed with materials that do not allow for sharp edges due to tooth grinding or shattering of the crown while clenching or chewing
  • Cost Effective – we have virtually eliminated the risk of failure at delivery (i.e. cracking, breaking & chipping)
  • BPA and Metal Free – provide peace of mind and reassurance for patient's parents
  • Autoclavable

EFFICIENT CHAIR TIME

The management of schedule and chair time is of utmost importance for dental providers.  Therefore, the focus of our development was to provide a product that will help increase productivity and efficiently manage the use of chair time.

Based on our own time analysis, delivery of a Figaro Crown takes the same amount of time as delivering a stainless-steel crown. 

Using our methodology, the preparation and delivery of a Figaro Crown on a typodont has consistently taken two minutes or less - 50% faster than the 4+ minutes required to prepare and deliver a Zirconia crown

Over the course of one year, this would save the equivalent to one full work week (as illustrated in chart below).
