PFM is a standard restoration procedure that entails bringing back your beautiful smile. PFM’s can be simply be explained as a hybrid between all-metal and all-ceramic detal crowns. This is because they are made of both materials. A metal alloy is used to make a thin thimble-like cap that fits snugly over the tooth. Porcelain is then fused over the structure. It forms the shape of the crown and gives it the white tooth-like structure that is much needed.
PFM crowns are ideal because they give an excellent balance between resilience and esthetics. The metal portion that is underlying provides a long-listing durability while the porcelain layer on the outer region brings out a natural looking authentic look.
