Even with the huge technological advances in alternative materials, PFM (Porcelain Fused to Metal) prosthetics are still the most widely prescribed replacement for natural dentition. The PFM crown is a tried-and-true restoration that provides strength and durability. It could be the only option for those difficult and complex situations that require precision attachments, or require high strength in situations with minimal room. PFM crowns look like natural teeth and are stronger than all-ceramic crowns.
Esthetic: Porcelain fused to metal crowns remain one of dentistry′s primary restorations of choice because, when properly constructed and seated, they are strong, reliable and esthetic. The porcelains used at our lab incorporate optical properties that parallel natural tooth structure resulting in superior esthetics.
