METAL CROWN REMOVAL
Metal Crown Removal
When it's Time to Restore a Seated Crown
When it's time to restore an already seated crown, we can certainly help. Crowns have a maximum lifespan of about 15 years. Sometimes they go bad before that time, or sometimes a patient just wants to remove any of the metal in their mouth. While the ADA supports the placement of metal infused crowns, a patient is always free to choose to make their own health decisions.
While rare, reactions to metal, including titanium, have been known to occur. If you do have an allergic reaction to a metal in your mouth, you should seek advice about how to proceed with ameliorating your reactions.
If you want a crown restored, please note that we only place porcelain crowns. If you have a metal fused crown removed, we will not be using metal in the replacement.

Metal Allergy Testing
Also, if you want to determine which metals you may be allergic to, you can take the MELISA test. The lab administering the test is from Germany, so you should account for shipping time to Germany. We also use the Clifford Test as an alternative.
