PFM is short for Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal. It consists of a metal coping and an outer porcelain coating. It is one of the most commonly used restorations. Patients choose them either for their anterior teeth, or for their molar teeth, because of the following reasons:

  • Cost effective
  • Relatively natural looking (but cannot compete with all-ceramic restorations)
  • Strong and durable
