Dental crowns are an extremely popular restoration for cosmetically and structurally improving your smile. A dental crown is a “cap” that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth above the gum line.
There are several different types of dental crowns, but one of the most popular styles is made from porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). PFM crowns represent the best in cutting-edge restorative dental technology.
PFM crowns are made of two materials: high noble metal and porcelain. For durability, they consist of porcelain layered over a high noble metal foundation, such as gold or platinum. This foundation makes them ideal for use in areas of high stress, such as the biting surface of teeth.
Porcelain is a lightweight ceramic material that is available in a variety of colors. PFM crowns are popular because they can match the color of natural teeth.
