W-5

Au (52.2%)-based dental metal-ceramic alloy, Type 4

W-5

W-5 is a classical, reduced-gold ceramic alloy. The good casting characteristics and the high heat resistance allow for the production ceramic veneered to metal frameworks and implant-supported superstructures of high accuracy.

Indications*

  • Onlays, ¾ crowns, crowns
  • Telescope crowns, conus crowns
  • Bridges
  • Wide-span bridges
  • Cast posts / cores, bars, attachments
  • Implant-supported superstructures
  • Partial dentures
