Emax Crowns, Inlays, Onlays and Veneers
What is Emax?
e.max is made from lithium disilicate ceramic — a strong material known for its strength and aesthetic qualities. There are more benefits of e.max crowns than there are eMax crown disadvantages or e.max crown problems.
Aesthetically e.max restorations are superior to zirconia or PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crowns.
However, in heavy bruxers (= patients who display bruxism such as grinding or clenching very strongly) e.max restorations need to be thick enough. In such cases, Zirconia (full contour) or PFM crowns might be better. However, in the majorities of cases treated in our clinic, we prefer e.max restorations.
As with all resin-bonded restorations, e.max crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays should be cemented under rubberdam. This can be a challenge and only very few dentists have the skills to fit an e.max crown under rubberdam (as it is done here in our practice:)!
