Types of alloys

  • High noble – Precious. These alloys have over 60% gold, platinum and/or palladium content. High noble metal is one of the easiest alloys to adjust. We offer full cast crowns in both yellow and white gold high noble.
  • Noble – Semiprecious. These alloys have over 25% noble metal (gold, platinum, palladium) content. Noble metal crowns offer a more hypoallergenic restoration over base metal crowns at a more affordable cost over high noble crowns.
  • Base – Nonprecious. Contains less than 25% noble metal. Many base metal alloys contain nickel, chrome, and/or beryllium alloys.
