Full-cast metal crown labs

Full metal crowns are a tried and true material for crown and bridge restorations. Gold is one of the most biocompatible materials in the world and a restorative material clinicians can trust. Its monolithic construction and performance provides a high-strength long lasting restoration. However, due to its aesthetics full metal crowns are most suitable for posterior restorations.
