Electroforming is a process that involves the deposition of layers of gold to form esthetic support structures featuring highly adaptable margins for a precise fit; when veneered with ceramic, these restorations also offer superb durability and functionality. Since electroforming can be used with titanium as well as with gold, this technology has broad potential for use with implant-supported prostheses.
