Porcelain Fused Metal Crowns
Porcelain fused metal restorations consist of a metal substructure placed on prepared tooth or implant applications and porcelain covered on this structure. In addition to a superior retention like other full crowns, they meet aesthetic expectations quite well. In addition, the metal makes the ceramic even more resistant to the microcracks that may occur in the ceramic. The fact that the porcelain fused metal crown is economical, is one of its important advantages.
In addition, in this technique, the metal prevents the transmission of light. For this reason, the aesthetics that can be achieved in full ceramic and zirconium crowns cannot be reached from an aesthetic point of view. It can also cause soft tissue discolorations over time.
