What Are PFM Crowns?

PFM crowns, also known as High Noble Metal And Porcelain Crowns, are made of a high nobel metal alloy covered with porcelain. They are used to restore teeth that are damaged or decayed.

PFM crowns are considered to be the best type of crown available. They are solid and durable and can match the color of your natural teeth. They are perfect for usage in high-stress regions, such as the biting surface of teeth.

Who Needs PFM Crowns?

If you have a tooth that is damaged or decayed, Dr. Ledbetter may recommend a PFM crown. We can use PFM crowns to restore misshapen or discolored teeth.

PFMs must be fitted by a qualified and experienced dentist like Dr. Ledbetter because they are manufactured specifically for each patient. The ideal choice for each patient will depend on their requirements and preferences. High Noble Metal And Porcelain Crowns (PFM) are an excellent choice for patients who:

  • Are looking for a long-lasting and robust alternative.
  • Need to fix a tooth that has experienced significant wear and tear.
  • Desire a crown that looks natural and complements the color of their teeth.
  • Needs a flexible solution that they can apply in various circumstances.

How Are PFM Crowns Made?

PFM crowns are made by first taking an impression of your tooth. Then, a mold is made from the impression. We send the mold to a lab, where your PFM will be custom-fabricated to fit your mouth perfectly. We place the metal alloy crown over the mold during fabrication and apply the porcelain to the crown. The materials include a combination of high-quality or “high noble” metals, like platinum and gold, to give a solid foundation, and porcelain to provide a natural look.

What Are The Benefits of PFM Crowns?

PFM crowns are the most robust and most durable type of crown. We can also match them to the color of your natural teeth. They can restore your smile to a beautiful, natural look with excellent dental functionality.

How Long Do PFM Crowns Last?

PFM crowns are strong and durable, making them ideal for restoring back teeth. While PFM crowns can last for many years with proper care, the porcelain may chip or wear down. To avoid this, you can take steps to protect your PFM crown, such as:

  • Not chewing on hard objects like ice or candy.
  • Wearing a night guard if you grind your teeth while sleeping.
  • Avoiding habits like biting your nails or chewing on pens or pencils.

Are There Any Risks Associated With PFM Crowns?

PFM crowns are considered to be very safe. There are no known risks associated with them.
