Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown

Crowns made of porcelain fused to metal contain both porcelain and metal in their composition. For this particular type of dental crown, the base is made of metal, and porcelain is fused to it using a procedure called jacketing. The PFM crowns gained popularity and were used often, with only extremely esthetic situations adopting all ceramic crowns. The crowns were made of porcelain. Because porcelain is translucent, an opaque material is utilized in order to guarantee that the metal is not visible through the material.


In addition to the most recent CAD/CAM technology and alternatives to frameworks that are manufactured using 3D printing, PFMs continue to be among the most reliable. At Puche Dental Lab, we are aware of the advantages that PFM crowns and bridges offer, and we are equipped with the necessary tools to manufacture them to the highest possible standards.

Popularity of PFM Crowns

The most recent ceramics are not only incredibly lovely but also quite strong, almost as strong as zirconia porcelain crown that is attached to metal. PFM crowns, on the other hand, may be necessary in some cases, such as when the durability and adaptability of metal is required in an entirely attractive form.
