A combination of intra and extra oral technique for repairing a multi-unit metal ceramic fixed partial denture

Mohamed Al-Moaleem, Nasser M Al-Qahtani


Metal-ceramic restorations have been used for several decades by clinicians to provide esthetics and masticatory function. This paper reports an intra-oral porcelain repair with periodontal treatment and modified over-casting techniques in a 30 years old female patient followed by the fracture of porcelain and metal exposure of maxillary central incisors in a three unit fixed partial denture.
