Ceramic dental overlays in Kyiv

Керамічні накладки на зуби

Ceramic overlays are one of the possible options for restoration of damaged teeth. They are made of ceramics and have a monolithic structure, so when fixed, they become seamlessly integrated with the tooth.

Today, this is a quite popular solution in dentistry. With the help of overlays, you can preserve the chewing function of the teeth, correct smile defects, prevent tooth decay, and prevent the development of pathological processes in the jaw.

The ceramic overlay is a strong orthopedic structure, with its  basis consisting of lithium-disilicate, providing durability, resistance to external stimuli and the complete absence of shrinkage.

Types of ceramic overlays

These orthopedic structures are divided into 3 types, depending on the extent of tooth tissue coverage:

  • Inlay –  is on the chewing surface and does not go over the ridges of the tooth
  • Onlay – it covers the chewing surface and completely or partially goes over the ridges of the tooth
  • Overlay – it completely covers the chewing surface and humps of the tooth, it can even reach the contact surfaces between the teeth in the dental row.

The dentist determines exactly what type the patient needs, depending on the area of destruction or damage to the tooth crown.

Advantages of ceramic overlays

Ceramic overlays, like other types of ceramic restorations, have their advantages, which make them a preferred treatment option for restoring damaged teeth. Some notable advantages include:

  • Wear resistance – ceramics have a wear coefficient that closely resembles enamel, Ceramic restorations exhibit similar expansion and contraction coefficients to the hard tissues of the teeth, resulting in excellent wear resistance.
  • versatility – we can use overlays at different levels of tooth tissue destruction, from minor lesions to destructions that reach 70% of the chewing surface
  • durability of structures – these constructions have a predicted service life of more than 10 years, providing long-lasting results
  • Precise fit, which allows you to significantly reduce the risk of tooth sensitivity and secondary caries development.

The use of ceramic overlays offers aesthetic benefits as well, such as improving the appearance of the smile, restoring tooth shape, and enhancing overall dental aesthetics.
