PORCELAIN – METAL CROWNS
A Porcelain Fused to Metal crown consists of a dark coloured metal base and white porcelain layers on top of this base. PFM Dental Crowns were the gold standard for aesthetic cases once upon a time. However, in the last few years, they lost their seat to Porcelain Fused to Zirconia Crowns. The black alloy base of PFM crowns which is masked by opaquer materials may prevent achieving a natural look for the crown. Even though there are more aesthetic options available, they are still the first choice of most of the dental clinics because of their durability and cost effectiveness.
