PFM Restorations

(PFM crowns or bridges) are metal framework with a layer of porcelain fused on the metal. This makes them almost as durable as pure metal crowns but a lot more esthetic.

Frist we start with fabricating the metal framework on prepared tooth by manual wax up or with CAD/CAM wax pattern then Burn it out and casting it, using Nickel-Chromium alloys from which is Biocompatible and highly corrosion-resistant

After trimming and finishing the metal framework is thin, strong, and perfectly fits the prepared tooth, then we start the next stage which is build up the porcelain.
