Advantages of PFM Dental Crowns

Strength and Aesthetics

PFM crowns and bridges offer strength, aesthetics and value for money, with marginal integrity and certified ceramics.

The PFM crown has a high bond strength between metal and porcelain, offering strength and durability for long-span bridges and is also bio-compatibile.

Another benefit of PFM for crown and bridge restorations is the aesthetics, blocking discolouration of the underlying tooth structure. Hypersensitive or allergic patients can choose titanium, nickel or beryllium-free crown and bridge restorations or noble and high-noble alloy copings.

PFM crowns can also incorporate precision attachments when appropriate.


PFM Crowns are versatile restorations that can be used for single crowns, bridges, and even implant-supported restorations, providing solutions for various clinical scenarios.

Long-Term Success

PFM Crowns have a proven track record of long-term success when properly fabricated and maintained, offering patients reliable and durable restorations that stand the test of time.
