Conventional Casting Full Metal Crown And Bridge


This is cheapest in all crowns and bridges, if it is made by conventional hand-made method. This type of restoration is fabricated entirely out of metal. The metal restoration has a silver color.  Metals used in crowns and bridges are base-metal alloy (nickel or chromium).  The full metal restoration fabrication are done by conventional hand-made casting or CAD-CAM technology or DMLS technology.

Disadvantage Of Full Metal Crown And Bridges

  • This type of crown has metallic silver look. If you don't mind the fact that it's not tooth-colored, full metal crown is a good choice for back teeth for low budget.
  • If it is made by conventional hand-made casting method, there are chances of casting errors like porosity, metal shrinkage after casting, voids and sometimes errors may be due to improper wax pattern handling.
  • The casting error like porosity and voids are result in deficiency in properties of metal compromised the strength of dental restoration.
  • The metal shrinkage after casting result in improper fit of crown over model, then crown to seat crown on model, the inner fitting surface is grinded, result in improper fit of crown, marginal integrity compromised, result in leakage near margin, leads to secondary dental caries.
