Seventy-two specimens of four commercially used precious metals were constructed. The porcelain applied to these specimens was glazed up to nine times for shade comparison. Specimens were also studied with a scanning electron microscope prior to and after application of the porcelain. The important observations from this study were:1.The four types of precious metals looked alike after casting and surface treatment and prior to application of porcelain.2.Porcelain-bonded-to-metalshades, were not influenced by the types of precious metals used.3.Porcelain-bonded-to-metal shades remained stable after six glazings and changed only slightly after nine firings.
