Full cast crowns have a long track record of success and still serve as a dependable solution for the posterior region. Their clinical success is based on their biocompatibility, convenience, and longevity. Our team uses the latest equipment to ensure this industry staple provides precision and consistent fit. We also always ensure these crowns do not have an abrasive finish, which could be harmful to opposing dentition. Full cast restorations can last a lifetime with proper cleaning and maintenance.
