Porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations have stood the test of time. The durability and strength of the metal combines with the esthetics of the porcelain, which mimics natural dentition. This dental restoration provides lasting service due to its quality alloys and layered porcelain. The biocompatibility of this restoration ensures long lasting periodontal health for every patient. Our team utilizes CAD/CAM technology, so every PFM restoration we craft has ideal precision.
Our PFMs can be used for crowns and bridges (up to fourteen units). PFMs can be manufactured to nonprecious, semiprecious, and yellow high noble copings and can be used in conjunction with cast partials and implants.
Contraindicated when the patient has a metal allergy or when the size of the tooth pulp is negligibly smaller, thus compromising the tooth preparation process. It is also contraindicated when the clinical tooth crown is very short and lacks the required stability including retention that is enough to provide the space for porcelain and metal.
The ideal preparation for PFMs is a chamfer margin preparation. If a porcelain labial margin is prescribed, then a shoulder margin preparation is required.
If an adjustment is required on the ceramic, use a fine diamond with water and air to keep the crown cool. To contour the ceramic, polish with a pink rubber wheel and diamond polishing paste (Brasseler, Shofu, Vident).
