Structural Advantages of Mono-Ceramic Restorations

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this audio clip, the listener should:

  • Understand the advantages of mono-ceramic restorations
  • Know the differences between mono-ceramic (monolithic) restorations and multi-layered (zirconia) restorations

The purpose of dental restorations has always been to provide structural integrity while meeting the increasing aesthetic demands of patients. Due to the limited strength of aesthetic material, clinicians have generally met this balance by using a multi-layered approach to restorations, first using a strong material such as zirconia to build up a base and then covering that base with a more aesthetic material such as porcelain. The advancement of new dental materials, such as lithium disilicate, presents clinicians with the option of crafting a mono-ceramic or monolithic restoration. These monolithic restorations exhibit increased strength and remove some of the drawbacks associated with multi-layered restorations.
