The eMax crown is a type of all-ceramic crown which is preferred for its longer lasting, aesthetic qualities. This crown and the Zirconia crown are worn due to their highly attractive appearance which ensures that they compliment the rest of your teeth. It is considered a good option for damaged, stained or poor quality teeth.
WHAT IS AN eMAX CROWN?
eMax represents a major breakthrough in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. One reason behind this is a combination of its high esthetics and superior strength. The all-ceramic dental crowns and restorations made from e.max are natural-looking and contain no metal. Depending on the correction you want to make, your dentist will work with you to select the best option whether it be crowns, veneers, a bridge or implants.
eMax is a material that satisfies my esthetic needs in the anterior and my functional needs in the posterior.
eMax restorations can help fix:
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Older dental work utilizing metal
- Shape or form of teeth
- And many more issues!
Is the procedure painful?
No, you will have an injection to numb the area so you will not feel anything while your natural tooth is being prepared for the procedure. It should feel no different to having a filling.
How do I care for my dental crown?
The eMax crown itself cannot decay, but decay can start where the edge of the eMax crown joins the tooth. Therefore, to prevent decay affecting the crown, it is important to keep this area just as clean as you would your natural teeth. Brush two times a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
