Full Cast

Our full gold, or solid metal alloy crowns have a long history of success, providing strength in the posterior with minimal preparation. They are digitally designed and milled in wax prior to casting for consistent quality results.

TYPES OF ALLOYS:

  • Precious - These alloys have over 60% gold, platinum and/or palladium content. High noble metal is one of the easiest alloys to adjust. We offer full cast crowns in both yellow and white gold high noble.

  • Semiprecious - These alloys have over 25% noble metal (gold, platinum, palladium) content. Noble metal crowns offer a more hypoallergenic restoration over base metal crowns at a more affordable cost over high noble crowns.

  • Nonprecious - Contains less than 25% noble metal. Many base metal alloys contain nickel, chrome, and/or beryllium alloys.
