Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant System

Nowadays, patients are more esthetic and health conscious than ever before. Healthy-looking oral soft tissues and bright teeth are considered a prerequisite for a beautiful smile and self-esteem, adding directly to health-related quality of life. The Straumann® PURE Ceramic implants are ivory-colored like a natural tooth root and provide a highly esthetic and metal-free alternative to implants made out of titanium.
