Porcelain Fused to Metal

Spartan Dental Lab is proud to offer porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. These crowns are metal cast with porcelain fused over top, allowing your patient a natural tooth appearance when these treatments are received. PFM restorations have proven integrity as they have been a staple in the industry for many years because they offer stability and strength.
