Full Cast

With a lengthy history of success, full cast crowns still serve as a reliable solution in the posterior region. Their clinical success is reliant on their biocompatibility, ease of use, and longevity. Fabricated on our lab’s state-of-the-art equipment, these crowns provide exceptional precision, consistent fit, and a nonabrasive finish that protects opposing dentition. Prescribe full cast crowns when patients require a posterior solution that can last a lifetime when properly cleaned and maintained.
