PARTS OF PFM
( PORCELAIN FUSED TO METAL)
These restorations are composed of; Metal substructure (Coping) supporting a ceramic veneer those are chemically and mechanically-bonded together
Core: cast metallic framework. Also known as coping.
Opaque porcelain : first layer consisting of porcelain modified with opacifying oxides
- Mask the darkness of the oxidized metal framework
- Metal-ceramic bond
Final buildup of dentine and enamel porcelain.
Bonding of porcelain to the metal copings
– Infiltration (flow) of the fused ceramic into the surface irregularities of the metal coping.
– Sandblasting of the metal surface or using plastic beads during waxing are important for this issue.
– Ionic bond between the metal oxide layer and the opaque porcelain.
– Metal degassing is important for oxide formation, removing the surface contaminants and greases.
– Thin oxide layer (in case of noble alloys) provides stronger bond than the thick one (in case of base metal alloys).
As a result of higher metal contraction on cooling,
– The fused porcelain will be sucked (attracted) more strongly into the metal surface irregularities.
– Residual compressive stresses will developed in and strengthen the porcelain.
Certain metal system (electro-forming) requires the application of specific bonding paste before building-up the porcelain.
PFM Vs Zirconia,Porcelain Or Ceramic Crowns
Porcelain or ceramic crowns provide the best and most natural look. They match your surrounding teeth in shape, size, and color
They are not as strong as metal crowns. Porcelain crowns can last a long time, but they have to be well taken care of.

The metal in these crowns may cause a grey line at the gumline.

They are strong and long-lasting (less possibilities of chipping or breaking).
Their strength can make the teeth they bite against wear down easily.
Zirconia Crowns and E-max crowns cost approximately the same as all- porcelain crowns
