Porcelain fused to metal crowns are often referred to as PFM crowns. There are options when making a PFM crown that can help to make them a little better than their predecessors which have had some criticism lately. A PFM crown has been known to leave the appearance of a dark line at the gums in some cases, and because of the core being comprised of metal, sometimes the quality of the metal is not up to standard. Thankfully you now have a choice of what type of PFM crown you would like to order. We can use standard metals, noble metals, or high noble metals which are precious alloys. It’s even possible now to combine the benefits of a metal structure with the digital technology of milling the base of the crown in a digital milling machine.
When you increase the quality of the components of the PFM Crown, you definitely increase the attractiveness of it, but also, the price is affected. There comes a point where the price is only a small difference from a zirconia or EMAX milled crown. There can be specific reasons for wishing to use a PFM crown, such as support for a partial removable, or other concerns. We can help to answer your questions, and help you decide if this type of crown is fitting for you.
