Is it okay to yse non-precious metal for implant crowns?

Q. Dear Dr Moore, I am a Dental Technician in Trinidad and I have a Dentist that insist on using non- precious metal as a base for Implant crowns. I have offered gold and zirconia but he insist on the non precious. Is non precious metal compatible with the Titanium? and if not what is the scientific reason. Thank you
A. I’m sure well made non precious metal crowns work OK. I guess it is for purely financial reasons he ould use them. I prefer precious metal as the longer castings often needed for implant bridgework tend to fit better.
