Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns. PFMs Offer a Consistent and Reliable Fit.
PFMs are fabricated with a metal-alloy interior and a porcelain exterior. This allows them to have the strength of metal crowns combined with the aesthetics of porcelain crowns.
Pros and Cons for PFMs:
Good strength because of metal under porcelain
Ideal for very dark stumps or metal post
Covers all stump shades
Often a dark line at margin due to metal will show through. Therefore, consider a porcelain shoulder margin when performing an anterior tooth restoration
Recommended for bridges of all sizes
1.5-2 mm reduction recommended
SeaBrook Dental Laboratory consistently creates PFMs that fit perfectly with the proper occlusion and require minimal, if any, chair-side adjustments. Let us make your job easier and less stressful.
