PFM

Porcelain fused to metal crowns and bridges are the timeless standard for dental restorations. We have a full selection of High Noble, Noble and Base metal alloys. The metal provides flexible stability and strength, while the bonded porcelain provides the hardness, color, contour and function which mimics the performance esthetic of dentin and enamel in natural dentition. These crowns are still a popular option due to their high rate of clinical success.
