Angulated screw channel solutions

Manage challenging cases easier with cement-free solutions

FCZ Implant Crown

FCZ implant crown

Why FCZ?

  • Full-contour, full strength: The FCZ Implant Crown is CAD/CAM manufactured from translucent high-strength zirconia
  • Less chipping: Reduce complications with a full-contour crown – no veneering material needs to be applied
  • 100% cement-free1: Reduce risks with a screw-retained implant crown. Even the adapter is mechanically retained
  • The FCZ Implant Crown is part of our complete posterior solution. Discover how you can achieve shorter time-to-teeth in the posterior

Easy handling and esthetics

  • Thermo stable color means no fading shade after firing
  • No surprises: Color is applied throughout the material avoiding discoloration during adjustments
  • Be in control: work easily with the pick-up function and secure hold of the Omnigrip Screwdriver
  • Gain easy access with the angulated screw channel function

Dr. Juan Zufia and Santiago Dalmau – anterior restoration

Situation: Agenesis of both lateral superior incisors. Maryland porcelain bridges with continuous decementations. 2-3 mm of bone width in both areas of the ridge. Not enough bone to place implants and sunken areas in the gingiva.

Solution: Removal of the Maryland Bridge. Connective tissue graft and guided bone regeneration performed. Placement of two NobelActive NP implants and two directly veneered NobelProcera ASC Abutments.

Dr. Benjamin Cortasse, France – anterior restoration

Situation: Fractured maxillary right central incisor. Tooth is hopeless and extraction is planned. Insufficient periapical bone.

Solution: Bone and connective tissue grafts. NobelActive implant placement with provisional crown. Use of NobelProcera ASC Abutment for final restoration to avoid screw access hole being located labially.

Dr. Marwan Daas, Dr. Karim Dada and M. Jean Marc Etienne, France - anterior restoration

Situation: Ectodermal dysplasia cross-linked with multiple congenitally absent teeth leading to typical occlusal disorders. These agenesia are associated with severe alveolar bone atrophy.

Solution: Placement of six NobelReplace CC NP implants using NobelClinician software and guided surgery. Six NobelProcera ASC Abutments serve as screw-retained restorations.

What users say


Dr. Benjamin Cortasse, DDS, France

"These new solutions give both the restorative dentist and the dental technician more options. Greater flexibility helps ensure the best possible treatment outcome. Thanks to the free placement of the screw axis, the visual properties of the ceramics, such as translucency, can be optimized while preserving the advantages of a screw-retained solution.”

Dr. Marwan Daas, DDS, France

“The ability to implement CAD/CAM screw-retained zirconia restorations in more cases represents a real treatment evolution.”


Patrick Rutten, Dental Technician, Belgium

“How many cases do we know where the screw access hole would come out at the incisaledge or even at the labial plane. Now, we can create a single screw-retained crown without cementing.”


Dr. Scott MacLean, DDS, FADI, FPFA, FACD, Canada

“We can get the screw channel in the ideal spot for both esthetics and strength, as well as for ideal placement of the final restoration. This is just fantastic."
