For many years, gold and base metal alloys have been used in the construction of cast removable partial dentures. Each alloy has desirable properties, yet neither is ideally suited for all portions of a framework. A method has been developed to fabricate prostheses by casting gold alloy against a base metal alloy. This procedure allows the practitioner to combine the favorable characteristics of both alloys within a single framework. Consequently, the practitioner may create frameworks that more effectively meet the biomechanical demands of the oral environment.
