PFMS

PFMs

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.
