Ceramic Fillings

1. What are ceramic fillings?


Ceramic fillings for teeth are specific prosthetic fillings, and are often called indirect fillings (fillings). They serve as fillings in cases when caries has destroyed the tooth crown too much and when, after caries removal, the obtained cavity cannot be satisfactorily compensated with a classic filling - either from amalgam or from composite.

 

That is when we proceed to making this kind of the upgrades. They have exceptional aesthetic and mechanical characteristics, so they fit perfectly with the natural color of the teeth. Ceramic fillings include ceramic inlays (a solution similar to composite fillings, but of better quality), ceramic onlays (ceramic fillings that include the tip of the tooth), as well as partial ones ie. partial dental crowns. 


2. What materials are ceramic fillings made of?


Ceramic fillings for teeth, as their name suggests, are made of ceramic materials. Thanks to modern ceramic materials, such fillings have excellent mechanical and aesthetic characteristics.

 

 

3. What are the advantages of ceramic fillings compared to composite or amalgam?


Unlike classic dental fillings, which are made and modeled in the mouth from composite materials, Inlay, Onlay and Overlay are made using the latest CAD / CAM technology.


 

When a large part of the tooth tissue is damaged, it cannot be compensated with composite fillings, but it is necessary to use stronger and more resistant material in such situations. Before, teeth with large fillings were placed under the crown, but new technologies and a modern way of making, enabled and facilitated the process of making ceramic fillings. Ceramic fillings ensure that the damaged tooth is taken care of with as little removal of the remaining healthy tooth tissue as possible.

Also, a significant advantage is the excellent edge adhesion of ceramic fillings. Good adhesion to the tooth of any dental restoration, reduces the possibility of recurrence of caries due to the entry and retention of food and bacteria. That is why the edge of the ceramic filling is precisely done in a computer, by the software based on the analysis of 3D models.

 

Over the years, microcracks can be created in composite fillings at the joint with the tooth, and thus weaken the edge adhesion. Ceramic fillings are dimensionally stable and provide greater durability. Ceramic dental fillings provide us with superior aesthetics, as well as coordinated contact, which is also pre-planned in the software. 

 

4. What does the procedure for placing a ceramic filling look like?

 

Depending on the tooth surface they are restoring, the upgrades have different names: inley, onley and overley. It is necessary to prepare the tooth for any of these restorations. The procedure is very short. After the preparation of the tooth, which includes the removal of caries and the preparation of the tooth, the impression is taken with the help of an intraoral scanner, very quickly and comfortably. Another option is to take a conventional impression, and then the cast model is scanned on a computer.

 

Thus, a virtual model is obtained, on which the creation process continues. Immediately after that, the restoration is planned and designed on the computer on a virtual model thanks to 3D software. When the design is completed, the type of ceramic for the appropriate upgrade is chosen and the software passes the information to the cutting machine in which the ceramic block will be cut in the form of a previously designed upgrade. The restorations made in this way do not differ in shape and color from natural teeth.

5. How many visits to the dentist are needed to make a ceramic filling?

 

Ceramic dental fillings are usually made in one to two visits to the dentist. In cases when the tooth on which the ceramic filling is performed requires dental treatment, then the number of visits increases.

 

6. What is the lifespan of a ceramic filling?

 

The lifespan of ceramic fillings depends on several factors and will depend on whether all procedures have been followed during its installation. The longevity of the prosthetic restoration itself also depends on the quality of the ceramic material it is made of, because it is not the same whether cheaper or more expensive ceramic materials are used.

 

Dental Plaza Dental Practice uses the highest quality ceramic materials from a reputable manufacturer. Also, the size of the ceramic restoration on the tooth, as well as its fitting into the occlusion (bite) can affect the lifespan. Ceramic fillings that compensate for large tooth surfaces are more prone to cracking.
