PFM Crown and Bridge of Dental Laboratories


PFM or Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal crowns and bridges have long been the standard of care in restorative dentistry.


The porcelain fused to metal crown or bridge are made using a metal substructure that provides support, durability, and strength. The porcelain is then applied over the metal in multiple layers of varying shades to match the patient's surrounding teeth so that it looks natural.
The PFM dental crown and bridge restoration is best suited for areas where the patient has sufficient tooth structure remaining to support the crown, but crowns are also used when there is not enough tooth structure remaining due to decay or trauma. PFM dental crowns are also used to restore fractured teeth, strengthen root canaled teeth, cover unsightly teeth, cover a dental implant, re-stabilize a loose tooth, and improve bite function.


PFM lab crown and bridges are fabricated with a combination of porcelain and metal, which results in high strength, durability, and esthetics.


The dental laboratory technician first fabricates a metal coping that is fused to the porcelain using a furnace. The coping can be either casted or milled. The crown or bridge is then sculpted out of porcelain and layered onto the coping using a variety of techniques.
PFM crown and bridge are one of the most popular types of restorations in dental laboratories. They are manufactured in a very specific way, which can be explained as follows:


Materials: The materials used for PFM crowns and bridges include porcelain powder and metal alloys. These are mixed together to form the liquid that is then purified using an induction furnace before being poured into the porcelain molds. When this cooled down enough, it becomes solidified and ready for use as a crown or bridge.


Firing process: PFM crowns and bridges are fired at very high temperatures to harden the material so that they will last longer than other types of dental restorations. The firing processes usually take place in a kiln or oven, where temperatures can reach up to 2000°F (1093°C). Once this has occurred, they are ready for use!


Finishing touches: After they have been fired, they will need some finishing touches before being placed into the mouth of your patient. Some examples include smoothing out any rough edges with sandpaper or smoothing them over with a file; adding colorization via stainers; polishing with pumice powder; adding adhesive materials such as cement or polymer.
Most PFM lab crowns and bridges restorations come in pre-fabricated shades, which may not be entirely satisfactory to some patients. However, customizing the shade of the restoration during the production process is possible in dental laboratories, allowing you to provide your patient with an even more natural-looking PFM crown or bridge.
The Composition of PFM Lab Crown and Bridge



Dental laboratories manufacture PFM crown and bridge using two different types of base material: precious base and non-precious base.


PFM lab crowns and PFM lab bridges with precious base are manufactured using gold and other precious dental materials. These crowns and bridges are more expensive than their non-precious counterparts, but they are typically a better choice for long-term use.


PFM lab crowns and PFM lab bridges with non-precious base are manufactured using nickel chrome, palladium silver, or cobalt chromium bases, which are less expensive than precious metals. This option is often used for short term solutions, such as temporary bridges or implant restorations.




The Difference Between Full Metal and PFM Crowns and Bridges


Full metal crowns are made from a combination of different metals. Typically, they are made of gold, nickel, chromium, cobalt, and platinum. They have an inner core that is usually made of a non-precious metal like nickel or cobalt. There is then a ceramic layer that is placed over the inner core to provide the desired color.


Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) is similar to full metal in that it has an inner core. This inner core can be made of precious or non-precious metals like gold or nickel. The difference between full metal and PFM is that the outer layer of the crown is porcelain instead of ceramic.


Full-metal lab bridges also work well in situations where the bridge has fewer units, since they are stronger than PFM bridges and less likely to weaken or break over time.
PFM dental crowns are made from a base of non-precious metals, like cobalt chrome or palladium silver/nickel chrome. On top of this base is a porcelain overlay that is fused to the metal with heat. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking crown that is also very strong and durable.


Precious PFM crowns are made from a base of precious metals, like gold. On top of this base is a porcelain overlay that is fused to the metal with heat. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking crown that is also very strong and durable.
Full metal crowns can also be made of both precious and non-precious metal, but they have no porcelain overlay. However, they are one of the most durable types of dental crown because they are made entirely out of metal.


PFM lab crowns are a mix of porcelain and metal, while full-metal crowns are made entirely of high-quality metal. PFM crowns are often the most popular option because they offer the strength of metal with the appearance of porcelain. PFM crowns also have a slightly cheaper price point than full-metal crowns, making them a good option for those on a budget.


Full-metal lab crowns are best for those who prefer the look of metal over porcelain. In addition to the aesthetic differences, there can be some health differences as well: PFM crowns sometimes require extra drilling to fit into your mouth, which can lead to damage or destruction of healthy tooth structure. As a result, your dentist may suggest using full-metal crowns in areas that require less drilling and destruction of tooth structure.


Full-metal lab bridges also work well in situations where the bridge has fewer units, since they are stronger than PFM bridges and less likely to weaken or break over time.




Dental Lab PFM Crown and Bridge Advantages


The dental industry has advanced to the point where technology has become a part of the work itself. In the past, everything was done by hand and it took some time to get the desired results. Today, technology and machinery take care of most of this work, thereby reducing errors and shortening turnaround times.


With technological advancements in dentistry also came new materials that could be used. The porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crown is one such example. It uses a metal structure that is fused with porcelain on top. This gives it durability and longevity while still making it look natural and beautiful.

PFM Lab Crown and Bridge Cost Guide


The PFM LAB Crown and Bridge Cost differs depending on the material you choose for your crown and bridge work. The PFM LAB Crown and Bridge Cost also varies depending on the number of teeth involved.


PFM lab crown and bridge prices are based on units, complex or not. The complexity of a case is determined by the difficulty of the preparation, whether it is anterior or posterior, number of pontics required, and if any implants are present.
We have worked hard to make sure that this product is cost-effective for you and your patients, while still offering an extremely durable solution that will last for years to come. The PFM lab Bridge is made from high-grade porcelain and has been tested extensively in our labs for maximum strength and longevity.




PFM Restoration of Dental Crown and Bridge Timeframe


The length of time it takes to create the crown or bridge is determined by the material used, how much preparation is needed before the restoration goes on, and how many teeth are being replaced.
The timeframe for PFM restoration and dental crown and bridge is about two weeks, though this can vary depending on a variety of factors.


In order to determine how long your case will take, we will first need to determine the complexity of the case, which can be done by examining your CT scans and taking an impression of your mouth. The more complex the process required, the longer it will take.


For example, if you need a simple partial bridge that does not require us to custom-create your crowns or bridges, the time should be relatively quick—about two weeks from start to finish. However, if you need implants or have a severely damaged tooth that needs extensive restoration before we can even think about placing a crown or bridge on it, then this could take longer.


The process of restoring dental crowns and bridges at PFM Dental Lab takes about two weeks. However, this timeframe can vary depending on the complexity of the case and any alterations that need to be made along the way. Generally speaking, a straightforward PFM restoration will take closer to two weeks while a complex restoration may take longer.
