Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns (PFM)
Advantages of porcelain fused to metal crowns
- The underlying metal fused with the porcelain provides stability and strength to the crown.
- It has great aesthetic appeal and is most commonly preferred as it gives the restored tooth a natural look.
- They have a very high rate of success in the long run.
PFM crowns are a hybrid between porcelain and metal crowns. Initially a metal shell is prepared which can fit perfectly over the concerned tooth. Then a porcelain veneer is fused on the metal shell which gives the crown a natural looking appearance. METAL DOES NOT SHOW AT ALL.
The best part of these crowns is the stability and strength which is unmatched to any other restorations available today.
- These are best for patients looking for natural look and durability.
- Porcelain fused to metal crowns (PFM) are highly recommended for back teeth restorations
- PFM crowns have been the commonest option for dentists as well as for patients for over 35 years
WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?
- A dental crown is a cap that is tooth shaped. It covers a particular tooth to re-establish its size, shape, appearance and improve its strength.
- When the crown is cemented, it completely encases the visible portion of the tooth.
- They look just like a natural tooth and last for about seven years. Sometimes, they last up to forty years
When is a dental crown needed?
- There are a number of conditions when crowning may be required. Some of them are:
- To protect any tooth from breakage or decay and in some cases to hold pieces of a cracked tooth together.
- To restore a broken tooth.
- To support and cover a tooth with an outsized filling in case a large part of the tooth is not available.
- To keep a dental bridge in its place.
- To cover up a tooth that is highly discolored.
- To cover up a dental implant.
Some typical use cases of dental crowns:
- In case of a cracked tooth resulting from chewing with excessive force, crowning becomes essential.
- A tooth which underwent root canal treatment may become weak and be more vulnerable to a fracture. Thus, it needs to be covered by a crown so that chances of fracture are minimized.
- When a tooth becomes fractured such that any filling cannot restore it then it has to be replaced with a crown.
A PORCELAIN FUSED TO METAL CROWN (PFM) is a preferred choice when bridges for the long run are required and night grinding is a problem. Since these crowns are a combination of porcelain and metal they are accepted worldwide and well known for the treatment they cater. They are trusted not only by the patients but also by the doctors all over the globe.
(made with empress or zirconia ceramic)
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length.
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.
What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?
Veneers are routinely used to fix:
- Teeth that are discolored – either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
- Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
What Are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?
Veneers offer the following advantages:
- They provide a natural tooth appearance.
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
- Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
- The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
- Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color and shape-veneers generally don’t require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to bonding
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
Veneers generally last between 5 and 10 years. After this time, the veneers would need to be replaced.
Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care?
No. Continue to follow good oral hygiene practices including brushing and flossing as you normally would.
This treatment can be completed in four days

Advantages of Having Zirconium Crown
Zirconium is becoming one of the most chosen materials for dental crowns. Its many advantages include:
- Extraordinarily tough
- Can withstand wear and tear
- Translucent enough to be similar to natural teeth
- Less tooth removal
- No Metal fuse
- Modifiable size, shape and color
The aesthetic effects alone of a zirconia crown should be the biggest advantage it can give. It is important that you have dental crowns that will look natural especially if it will be placed at the front teeth and will be visible beside the natural teeth.
The capacity of zirconium to be modified according to the set of teeth it will be placed alongside with is very important. Zirconium crown will not only replace a tooth but it can shaped so that it will look better than the one it will be replacing with. This therefore is why you can sport that perfect natural looking smile anytime.
Zirconia manufacturers are now producing and designing dental crowns custom milled from solid block of the material and baked at ultra high temperatures to ensure that the finished crowns are almost indestructible.
The fact that this material is biocompatible means that it is safe to stay within your mouth for a long time. There is no need to worry about any adverse reactions from your body because it is not rejected by the human body.
Advantages of Zirconium Crowns over Gold Crowns and Porcelain Crowns
It is a fact that gold crowns have been used by many people for so many years and it is well tolerated by the body. But it is still better to be able to show that natural effect when you smile. Add the fact that gold is metal and some people just do not like having metals in their internal parts.
Zirconium crowns are definitely more robust than porcelain crowns. They last longer too, compared to porcelain that chip and break.
Porcelain crowns also need to be fused to a metal base and the metal is that black unsightly line above the gums of people with porcelain crowns.
Since Zirconium crowns are milled from a chunk of crystal, they are guaranteed to be at least 5 times stronger than porcelain and it metal fuse. Zirconium crowns also provide strength without that bulky appearance that porcelain is so known for.
How Much Does a Zirconia Crown Cost?
Zirconium crown prices greatly vary depending on the country you live in, the experience of the dentist and the dental technician providing the treatment, the size of the crown/tooth. However in general it is true that zirconium is the most expensive type of dental crown. Unfortunately the increased durability, the natural look and biocompatibility comes with a price tag…
Prices in the United States are around $1,200.00 to $1,500.00 per unit and around £1,000 per unit in the UK. Please be aware that this is only a rough estimate of the average price.
If you need multiple crowns, it might be economical to travel abroad to get the treatment.
