PFM & Full Cast

If you're looking for reliability, then look no further than Artistic's PFM and full cast restorations. Since 1970, we've provided consistent and ideal fit, contacts, occlusion, and esthetics. We continue to keep up with the latest technology and incorporate CAD/CAM design and fabrication for consistency and accuracy. Captek® is a great choice if you're comfortable with PFM but want something biocompatible, corosion resistant, and that creates less bacterial accumulation.

Although much of our PFM, Captek®, and full cast indications are being replaced by BruxZir®, Zeternity® PFZ, and e.max® all ceramics, PFM and full cast will always have their place.

Send us your impression or pre-operative model and we’ll make you ArtisTEMPS® provisionals with ideal shape and function in only 5 days. After preparation, simply reline and cement the ArtisTEMPS®.

In Lab Working Time
PFM, full cast= 7 days
