PFM dental crown and PFM bridges have continuously been proven to be prominent devices for teeth restoration from the past few decades. The reason behind this extensive use of Porcelain Fused to Metal devices is their versatility and sustainability. There is a global misconception that PFM crowns and bridges show fewer aesthetics than ceramic. We at BellaViso Al Barsha, Dubai, show you that Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns and bridges can be as aesthetic as ceramic or metal. Some high qualities that have helped dentists to adopt PFM are Its underlying metal portion that renders long-lasting durability and offers an original appearance.

Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) Restoration

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. 

What does PFM Crown offer?

Porcelain Fused to Metal crown is also thought as all-cast crowns—with Porcelain fused all over the tooth. They are radically hybrid between metal and ceramic crowns. The PFM crown has a groundwork of metal layer and Porcelain on top of it. Moreover, the metal skeleton is thin and perfectly crafted to fit over the substructure. Generally, the crown is a combination of several types of alloy to exceptionally bond with Porcelain.

The metal used in the manufacturing of these devices is of high melting point. This proves the sustainability and reliance of PFM crown and bridge. This quality of metal also ensures that the metal won’t change its color after a while. One must not neglect the strength of the porcelain layer. Porcelain’s coating is hard and rough enough to sustain the force of chewing, biting, and appearing like your natural teeth. They are mostly preferred as they match the color scheme of the adjacent teeth. Moreover, they are appropriate for both rear and front teeth.
