Porcelain Margins

Porcelain Margins

The porcelain margin can be an integral part of a premium restoration, maximizing esthetics and oral health. The porcelain margin helps avoid metal visibility, tissue discoloration and possible over-building of the gingiva. The elimination of the labiogingival metal collar of a porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) restoration is an attempt to achieve an improved esthetic result. In their expectation of a more cosmetic tooth restoration, patients may influence dentists to use the all-porcelain labial margin to avoid metal showing in the final restoration.
