However, after 2-3 years of use, the metal frame will be oxidized in our oral environment, causing the gingival black phenomenon, quite aesthetic loss to the teeth, and it can irritate the gums if you are sensitive. So at that time, you should replace the new porcelain teeth.

It is not oxidized, does not cause black gum, does not irritate the gums. And life expectancy may be 10-15 years or so if you take good care of it.
