CAD/CAM PFM

Slocomb Dental Laboratory knows how to help you grow your practice in uncertain economic times. With the rising price of gold, you need a strong, well-fitting and biocompatible solution to gold PFMs and full-cast crowns. Our CAD/CAM PFM copings and full golf crowns are milled or made using SLM (Selective Laser Metal) with your choice of base, noble or high noble ensuring CAD/CAM fit and durability and an impurity-free restoration for ultimate biocompatibility.

Indications

Our PFMs can be used for crowns and bridges (up to fourteen units). PFMs can be manufactured to non-precious, semi-precious, and yellow high noble copings and can be used in conjunction with cast partials and implants.

Preparation

The ideal preparation for PFMs is a chamfer margin preparation. If a porcelain labial margin is prescribed, then a shoulder margin preparation is required.

Feather-edge margin preparations are indicated for full-cast restorations.

Cementation

  • Panavia 21 – tin plated
  • Glass ionomer cement (GC Fuji, GC America)
  • Zinc Phosphate Polycarboxylate
  • Resin Ionomer cement (RelyX, 3M ESPE)

Tech Notes

If an adjustment is required on the ceramic, use a fine diamond with water and air to keep the crown cool.

To contour the ceramic, polish with a pink rubber wheel and diamond polishing paste (Brasseler, Shofu, Vident).
