Porcelain Teeth with Metal Infrastructure

Metal-assisted porcelain coating

Porcelain coating with metal infrastructure is usually used in bridge prostheses in dentistry. Strong, robust satisfactory aesthetics, which are usually used on the back teeth, are a type of prosthesis.

It is less preferred in the front tooth area with high aesthetic expectations. Full ceramic prostheses such as Zirconium, Emax, leaf porcelain are preferred for these regions.

Metal-assisted porcelain coating ADVANTAGES

– Metal-assisted porcelain coatings are very robust and long-lasting. The metal alloy contained in it perfectly adapts to the teeth and surrounding tissues.

– It is more cost-effective than full ceramic crowns (zirconium, Emax).

– Metal-assisted coatings have a satisfactory aesthetic when the required precision is shown.

Metal-assisted porcelain tooth DISADVANTAGES

– Due to the metal infrastructure in it, the transparent and light-permeable structure in natural teeth is not found in these prostheses.

– Aesthetics is a weaker application than zirconium and full porcelain.

– There may be a possibility of a dark line on the edge of the gums in individuals with thin type gum thickness.

– In order to prepare the prosthesis, abrasion of natural teeth is required.

– Rarely, there may be an allergy to the metals contained in it.


This treatment includes a series of two-three-stage applications according to the case.

– The first step is to examine the tooth to be restored and to carry out the necessary treatments such as caries, abscesses, if any.

– 2. At the stage, the tooth is reduced somewhat for porcelain coating and made suitable for prosthesis. This reshaping process helps remove a significant portion of existing caries in the tooth.

– The measurement taken by taking a measurement from the tooth is transferred to the dental prosthesis laboratory.

– Porcelain tooth coating is rehearsed 2 times as metal and dentin in the mouth.

– As a result of all rehearsals, the prosthesis is harmonized with the mouth and the prosthetic teeth are attached with strong adhesives called urine.
