The emax® crown is another highly popular choice when it comes to dentists preferred crowns. It is not only durable and long lasting, but it also exhibits aesthetic qualities in its tooth-like appearance.
emax® crowns are made from a block of lithium disilicate ceramic, which is a tough and durable material, built to last. Not only is this crown almost indestructible, it also replicates the look and feel of a real tooth, making it a frequent choice with dentists & clinicians across Australia.
The main benefit of emax® is that it’s considered to be one of the most life like materials to use for a crown, bearing a striking resemblance to a natural tooth. This is most notably due to its translucency and the ability to colour match it to all shades of teeth.
emax® crowns are probably the most renowned for their ability to resist chipping. Unlike porcelain and even zirconia, to a lesser extent, which can be known to fracture or crack from time to time.
Another plus side to emax® crowns is that there is no unsightly metal base visible that can give your gums a grey tingle around the gum line. This is always a benefit to patients who may need a crown placed near the front of their smile.
Similar to zirconia crowns, e.max crowns take less preparation time than traditional crowns but can come at a more premium cost overall.
