Why Onlay (or Ceramic tab) better than Filling?
- Posted on: Apr 24 2020
Onlay is a micro-insert into the tooth decay, characterized by high aesthetics and durability, identical to healthy enamel.
Advantages of ceramic Onlays:
- more durable than fillings;
- great solution if you have a big decay;
- ceramic is translucent and completely mimic tooth color;
- the anatomical shape of the tooth is exactly repeated. To give the tab a perfect shape allows its manufacture outside the mouth;
- resistant to external influences, they do not darken with time, do not change color under the influence of coffee, tobacco, etc.;
- you can save your tooth and avoid the crown;
- Onlay lasts for more than 15 years.
Absolutely in all respects, the ceramic insert surpasses any other restoration, from the most “advanced” filling material. The low-temperature ceramic of which the insert is made has the same elasticity as healthy enamel and is erased during operation simultaneously with natural enamel, which is especially important if a healthy tooth is opposite.
