Fixed Restorations



Porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations are long-standing industry standards due to their high rate of clinical success. Our team utilizes high-quality metal alloys to craft a durable substructure. We then carefully bond esthetic porcelain on top for an appearance that mimics natural dentition. Finesse is supported by a team of expert technicians who skillfully create our PFMs to eliminate any potential discoloration or esthetic challenges that can occur will poorly made porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and bridges. PFMs are known to have high clinical success as they help encourage continued periodontal health with the patient's remaining dentition.

Our PFMs can be used for crowns and bridges (up to fourteen units). PFMs can be manufactured to nonprecious, semiprecious, and yellow high noble copings and can be used in conjunction with cast partials and implants.

Contraindicated when the patient has a metal allergy or when the size of the tooth pulp is negligibly smaller, thus compromising the tooth preparation process. It is also contraindicated when the clinical tooth crown is very short and lacks the required stability including retention that is enough to provide the space for porcelain and metal.

The ideal preparation for PFMs is a chamfer margin preparation. If a porcelain labial margin is prescribed, then a shoulder margin preparation is required. Feather-edge margin preparations are indicated for full-cast restorations.

If an adjustment is required on the ceramic, use a fine diamond with water and air to keep the crown cool. To contour the ceramic, polish with a pink rubber wheel and diamond polishing paste (Brasseler, Shofu, Vident).
