The porcelain placed on the metal is affected by the metal under it in the crowns fused to metal made by using chromium-cobalt or chromium-nickel alloy that is suitable for dental tissue and has necessary durability. Since the metal at infrastructure does not transmit light, it creates a matt view and a dark colour in the gum line. For this reason, fused to metal crowns are not esthetically recommended, especially for the teeth in the front region.
