Material Properties

  • These crowns contain high noble metal alloy of gold, platinum, and palladium with a minimum of 40% gold content.
  • Cast metal crowns withstand wear very well and are not prone to chipping or breakage.

Special Features of Cast Metal Crowns

  • Cast metal crowns are malleable.
    • The margins of these kinds of crowns adapt well to the contours of the tooth preparation.
  • Cast metal crowns have a long history of use for dental restorations.
  • These crowns resist the formation of dental caries.

Tooth Preparation

  • The properties of gold and gold-containing alloys allow cast metal crowns to be thin but incredibly durable.
  • Minimal anatomical reduction is required to achieve excellent long-term results.
  • Cast metal crowns conserve the natural tooth structure.

Taking Impressions For Cast Metal Crowns

There are several ways to take impressions. Below you will find the best ways to do so in order of preference for our dental lab:

  • Impression-free scans for a digital workflow
    • The crown preparation, hard tissue, and surrounding soft tissue are scanned chairside and transferred to the dental lab digitally.
  • Hybrid technology
    • Utilizing scannable impression material and impression trays, the impressions and bite are individually scanned into STL files.
    • Images are created and used to “print” 3D models in the dental lab.
  • Traditional polyvinyl siloxane impressions and bite registrations

Color Choices

Cast metal crowns are available in gold or silver-colored alloy metal, depending upon the platinum and/or palladium content.

Delivery and Cementation

We recommend mechanical retention secured with zinc phosphate or resin-modified glass ionomer cement for the best possible results.

Average Lifespan

  • Gold restorations have a history of lasting 25-30 years or longer, depending on how well the patient takes care of these crowns.
  • Literally considered the “gold standard” of restorative options for good reason — these crowns are designed to last for a long time. They serve as the standard by which all other options are judged.
