Patient treated with conventional PFM crowns ,yet new generation of methods and materials been used. Metal-free ceramics (e-max or zirconia) excluded from treatment options due to heavy forces being applied (patient is bruxer e.g strong clencher).
Despite conventional prostheses was treatment of choice, workflow was based upon state-of-the-art CAD/CAM procedures. Metal foundation was fabricated with laser sintering and covered with high-end feldspathic porcelain. Please note, that new PFM crowns are not to be considered even similar to PFMs of previous times both in terms of appearance and bio-compatibility.
