Argenco Y+ Crown Single Unit and Span Bridge

Product Description

All-Metal 2% Gold crowns are the perfect choice for dentists who want the look and feel of a full gold crown at an affordable fixed price. This type III Noble White alloy (2% Gold) from Argen is suitable for full-metal crowns, short span bridges, inlays, and onlays and easily polishes to a high luster.

DDS, Ltd. primarily mills All-Metal 2% Gold crowns because milling offers better fit as well as improved consistency and accuracy over full cast crowns; however, on occasion due to quick-turnaround time constraints, casting is necessary. Because the composition varies slightly from a milled all-metal crown vs. a traditional full cast crown and because you have a choice, below highlights our All-Metal 2% Gold products and corresponding compositions:

  • Au2 Milled: 2% Gold, 32.7% Palladium, 34.5% Silver, 28% Indium, 2.6% Zinc, <1% Iridium
  • Argenco Y+ (Full Cast): 2% Gold, 34.9% Palladium, 30% Silver, 30% Indium, 3% Zinc, <1% Iridium

With each case, Distinctive Dental Studio, Ltd. will include an IDENTALLOY® CERTIFICATE certifying the dental casting alloy we used to fabricate the prosthesis. The certificate may then be attached to the patient record.

“Our dentists and patients love Au2 Milled and Argenco Y+ and you will, too!”
