PFM can be considered as a hybrid because it is manufactured of both metal and all-ceramic materials.
First, the dentist will utilize a thin metal alloy to create a slim thimble-like “cap.” The cap is designed, keeping in mind the tooth’s size and fits flawlessly over the teeth. After that, Porcelain is fused over the groundwork as the bridge or crown.
Depending on the area on the patient’s tooth, the porcelain layer can be anywhere from 1.5 mm thick to 2 mm. Porcelain also plays the part of giving the natural-looking appearance to teeth. PFM helps make great teeth restoration devices and renders a remarkable balance between aesthetics and strength.
