Is it possible for a porcelain fused to metal crown to have mercury in it?
No, porcelain fused to metal crowns have no mercury in them.
There are a lot of types of metal in porcelain fused to metal. Some of these metal alloys have nickel in them, which is a metal that provokes hypersensitivity in many people. Dr. Chal most likes the zirconia crowns, which is beautiful and extremely strong ceramic, and there is no metal in the crown. But when he does use metal, it’s a high noble metal made of platinum, gold, and palladium – a hypoallergenic alloy.
I hope this is helpful.
