They can be divided according to:

  • Porcelain fused to metal.
  • All-porcelain.

Porcelain fused to metal

This type is made of a metal frame underneath and a fused ceramic layer on the top, and since porcelain is fused to the metal crown, its color may change, which leads to the appearance of the metal at the gum line after a period of use, and some metals may cause allergic reactions. But the advantages of porcelain fused to the metal crown are low costs, and it can be used in long bridges.
