A ceramic filling is a dental filling made of ceramic for damaged teeth. Ceramic fillings are very durable, of higher quality than amalgam or composite and, of course, almost invisible due to the basic color.
Ceramic fillings - also called ceramic inlays - meet the highest aesthetic and functional requirements. We have many years of experience in this field and can offer solutions for almost any size of defect.
Excellent long-term prognosis and high reliability
Tongue feel like that of a natural tooth
Low plaque adhesion
No temporary solution necessary
The prepared tooth is imaged with a 3D camera within a few seconds - the unpleasant impression with silicone mass in the mouth is eliminated
High comfort due to treatment in one session
Grinding & Digital Impression.
After removing the caries or the old amalgam filling, a 3D image of the tooth is taken directly at the treatment chair (chairside) using an oral camera (intraoral scanner). This has the advantage that no impression material needs to be used, and the gag reflex experienced by many patients is eliminated.
The dental restoration is then digitally designed (CAD) in our dental laboratory.
The ceramic milling unit mills the filling from an industrially prefabricated ceramic block (CAM), ensuring consistent restoration quality. In contrast, ceramic inlays or onlays pressed or layered in the dental laboratory have a higher risk of fracture due to processing errors such as air inclusions, impurities or similar.
The finished milled restoration is placed, i.e. bonded to the milled tooth, in the same session.
In particularly difficult cases, a plaster model is made following a conventional impression of the prepared teeth and subsequently photographed with a laboratory camera. Both procedures allow a 3D image to be created on the computer. Different brightness and color levels of the ceramic blocks allow the fillings to be perfectly matched to one's own tooth color.
CAD/CAM refers to digital, i.e. computer-assisted methods for the fabrication of dental restorations. CAD** stands for "computer aided design" and means the computer-aided design or construction of dental prostheses. CAM stands for "computer aided manufacturing" and means computer aided production, i.e. the milling of dental prostheses. Due to our in-house dental laboratory, we can produce dentures in this way with high quality, accuracy and speed, so you will have to wait less time.
