Porcelain Fused to Metal
Traditional porcelain fused to metal restorations.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) restorations are still the most prescribed restorative treatment alternative to date. Offering several different types of metals with which to fabricate the substructure, Creo Milling Center readily provides laboratories with a wide variety of PFM crowns and bridges. Porcelain margins are recommended to dramatically improve the aesthetic result by enabling natural light to penetrate at the gingival margins. The porcelains used at our lab incorporate optical properties that parallel natural tooth structure resulting in superior aesthetics. The PFM restorations appear so natural, they rival some of the most innovative restorative options available.
PFM offers the following advantages:
- Extremely durable – can be used for posterior crowns and bridges
- Familiar preparation technique
- Superb fit
- Easy one-step cementation
