PFM crowns are a hybrid between porcelain and metal crowns. Initially a metal shell is prepared which can fit perfectly over the concerned tooth. Then a porcelain veneer is fused on the metal shell which gives the crown a natural looking appearance. METAL DOES NOT SHOW AT ALL.
The best part of these crowns is the stability and strength which is unmatched to any other restorations available today.
A dental crown is a cap that is tooth shaped. It covers a particular tooth to re-establish its size, shape, appearance and improve its strength.
When the crown is cemented, it completely encases the visible portion of the tooth. They look just like a natural tooth and last for about seven years. Sometimes, they last up to forty years.
A PORCELAIN FUSED TO METAL CROWN (PFM) is a preferred choice when bridges for the long run are required and night grinding is a problem. Since these crowns are a combination of porcelain and metal they are accepted worldwide and well known for the treatment they cater. They are trusted not only by the patients but also by the doctors all over the globe.
