Indications for a composite metal PFM restorative
Fig. 1: The patient's worn, misaligned and discolored smile.
Fig. 2: Transformed into a naturally balanced smile using Captek crowns.
Fig. 3: Shade matching with Captek and accurate clinical records is virtually perfect. The crown in this picture is on tooth #13.
Fig. 4: The gingivae at these premolars restored with porcelain-fused-to-semi-precious-metal copings are severely inflamed and have receded substantially after only 14 months.
Fig. 5: The same teeth, 10 months after having been re-restored with Captek crowns, show no sign of gingival irritation whatsoever.
