Conventional Crowns

Conventional crowns are also known as ‘porcelain fused to metal crowns’. The base metal typically used is often a nickel-based alloy, which can result in an inferior product. AtObeid Dental our base metals are all High Nobel or Nobel alloys to ensure the best durability and biocompatibility for the finished crown.

Conventional Crowns
Conventional crowns are made of porcelain fused to metal. The metal used in the crown can vary in composition, including high noble, noble and base metal (nickel). At Obeid Dental, we utilize only high noble metals for fabricating crowns. These metals are the most tested and long lasting. Larger commercial labs have trended to restorations that require less time and skill to produce. This lower quality product can be favored by dentists looking to lower costs. In the hands of a skilled technician, conventional crowns can be very aesthetically pleasing with excellent durability. Obeid Dental has an in-house lab, manned by a master technician to fabricate our conventional restorations.
