State-of-the-Art Wieland AGC® electroforming technique combines the best of both worlds with the biological advantages of pure gold with the aesthetic advantages of all-ceramic restorations. Since 1986, the AGC electroforming technique has firmly established itself in the field of prosthetic dentistry. It is the most tried and tested, safest and most economical procedure for manufacturing dental prosthetics from pure gold and ceramics. This technique has been in successful clinical use since 1986. The AGC® electroforming technique is the most tried and tested, safest and most economical procedure for manufacturing dental prosthetics from pure gold.
AGC® restorations are composed of pure gold which will not discolor the gingiva through dark metal margins, oxides, or corrosion products. Every process uses only new material, keeping the electroformed gold layer free of shrinkage cavities, porosity, and impurities. There is no need to etch healthy tooth structure. AGC® copings can be cemented with clinically proven phosphate or glass-ionomer cements. Because the gold layer is only 0.2 mm thick more conservative preparations can be used.
The AGC® electroforming process is scientifically proven to provide high levels of accuracy and marginal fit. AGC® telescopic crowns allow for a gentle, tension-free handling of the removable bridge. There is no discoloration of telescopic parts which makes the AGC® technique ideal for supra-structures, especially implants. Producing an AGC® crown compared with other techniques reduces your cost of gold by at least 50%! Virtually all ceramic materials can be used for veneering AGC® crowns, including low fusing porcelains with a high CTE.
