Porcelain Fused to Metal Fixed Partial Denture - Unglazed

The most popular choice for fixed partial dentures remains to be the metal ceramic restorations. This is attributed to natural looking ceramic material supported with a high strength of metal alloy. Added to this property is its ease of fabrication and affordable pricing. However they are now being challenged by metal free ceramic restorations, specifically with CAD-CAM Zirconium Systems.
