Fabricating a Cast Custom Abutment
We start by waxing over the UCLA abutment to achieve the ideal shape, contour, and emergence profile needed for the individual restoration.
The technician then sprues and invests the pattern and places it in a burnout furnace. Once the ring is at the correct temperature the technician casts the abutment out of a prescribed alloy. We use yellow gold alloy for anterior and high palladium alloy for posterior abutments. After devesting the custom cast abutment it is finished and polished.
