PFM Crown

PFM Crown

PFM stands for Porcelain Fused to Metal. A PFM crown is a type of dental crown that combines a metal base with a layer of porcelain on top to create a natural-looking tooth restoration. The metal base provides strength and stability to the crown, while the porcelain layer is designed to match the color and texture of the natural teeth for a seamless appearance.

PFM crowns are commonly used for both front and back teeth and are often preferred for their durability, strength, and aesthetic appeal. They can be an excellent choice for patients who require a dental crown for a damaged or decayed tooth but want a restoration that looks and feels like a natural tooth.

What is the Procedure for PFM Crown?

The procedure for getting a PFM crown typically involves the following steps:

  • Evaluation: The dentist or prosthodontist will examine the tooth to determine if a crown is necessary and whether a PFM crown is the best option.

  • Tooth preparation: The tooth will be prepared by removing any decay or damaged areas and shaping it to fit the crown. This may involve reducing the size of the tooth to make room for the crown.

  • Impression: An impression or mold of the prepared tooth will be made using a dental putty or digital scanner.

  • Temporary crown: A temporary crown may be placed on the tooth while the permanent PFM crown is being made.

  • Crown fabrication: The impression will be sent to a dental laboratory, where the PFM crown will be custom-made to fit the patient's tooth and bite.

  • Crown placement: Once the PFM crown is ready, the temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent crown will be placed on the tooth using dental cement. The dentist or prosthodontist will check the fit and bite of the crown and make any necessary adjustments.

  • Follow-up: Patients should attend follow-up appointments with their dentist to ensure the crown is properly fitted and functioning as expected. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also important for maintaining the health of the crown and surrounding teeth.
