Porcelain Fused to Metal

Conventional porcelain is fused to non-precious, semi-precious or white high noble gold. It is an ideal restoration for your most demanding patients. We carefully design each coping and framework to provide superb fit, high strength and complete marginal seal.

Indications

Porcelain fused to metal can be used for all single-unit crowns and bridges. Porcelain can be fused to non-precious, semi-precious or white high noble copings. PFMs are also indicated for crowns and bridges used in conjunction with cast partials.

Benefits for the Patient

  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations offer impressive strength and desirable esthetics.
  • Versatile, can be easily designed to fit any type of preparation.

Prep Requirements

  • The ideal preparation for PFMs is a chamfer margin preparation. If a porcelain labial margin is prescribed, then a shoulder margin preparation is required. Feather-edge margin preparations are indicated for full-cast restorations.
