PFD Esthetic PFM

Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) restorations are fabricated using CAD/CAM technology resulting in a metal coping with a porcelain surface. We use only the highest quality alloys from Ivoclar Vivadent or Argen alloy manufacturers. Our porcelains are supplied by Ivoclar and Noritake. We do not cut corners or risk patient health by outsourcing PFM’s to foreign countries.

PFMS are an excellent option for dentists who seek a restoration that combines both durability and natural-looking internal characteristics. The underlying coping replicates the performance of a natural tooth, while the ceramic coating replicates the natural esthetics.

Porcelain fused to metal can be used for single and posterior single-unit crowns and bridges, and can be designed to fit any type of preparation as well. PFM restorations are also indicated for crowns and bridges used in combination with cast partials. Porcelain can be fused to non-precious, semi-precious or white high noble copings.
