What is E-Max (Full Porcelain)?
Without using metal or zirconium infrastructure, it is a porcelain that increased durability and obtained by baking glass ceramic on a pressed ceramic crystal core under pressure. It consists entirely of ceramic. Full porcelain teeth can also be called.
Which teeth can E-max be applied to?
In the front zone where estheticism is important; cutter, small molar teeth and single tooth missing in this region, E-max tooth coverings are made.
Which teeth can not E-max be applied to?
In the great molars with chewing forces and the rear region of the teeth with increased lateral forces; E-max tooth coatings are not preferred in the front and back region restorations where multiple missing teeth are present side by side. In these cases, E-MAX coatings reinforced with zirconium tooth coatings or zirconium particles with aesthetic and higher resistance should be preferred.
In which situations is E-max done?
In the case of canal treated teeth that can not be obtained with whitening,
In teeth with impaired position,
In the antibiotic, fluorine use and age-related colorings,
In the teeth with congenital tissue and deformity,
In the range of teeth,
In teeth that have worn physically and chemically over time,
E-max can be done in multiple restoration necessities and smile design.
Why and how does E-max dental coating look more natural?
The absence of metal substructure and full ceramic content mimics the transparency of natural teeth, the reflection and transmission of light. Adhesives also provide an ideal color and transparency for the E-max and dental tissue to match the chameleon effect of the materials. All characteristic features of your natural teeth can be transferred to E-max tooth coating. Thus, natural dental aesthetics are caught.
What are the application steps of E-max porcelain teeth?
First of all, photos of the patient’s face and in-mouth are archived. The size of the teeth is taken and the smile design suitable for the patient is obtained. With the so-called “mock up” method, the post-treatment appearance is demoed. Thus, considering the expectations of the patient, the smile design has the ideal form.
Does it make cold hot sensitivity?
E-max expansion coefficient with the temperature difference is close to that of the tooth. The E-max’s good compatibility with the teeth and the dissolution of the adhesive used in the oral environment ensures that there is no dental contact in the open; so cold hot sensitivity does not develop.
Both provide excellent aesthetics and biocompatibility, as they are reinforced special porcelains that do not contain a metal substrate. Thanks to its superior light transmittance and natural appearance, E-max is used in the front region; zirconiums are preferred in situations where aesthetic and high resistance demands are present.
Will the color and shape change over time?
E-max’s color and shape keep all the features.
Does E-max cause allergies?
While worthless metal alloys cause allergic reactions in individuals, E-max, a full porcelain, does not cause any reaction.
There is deformity and position disturbance in one tooth. Is it noticed if E-max is done?
E-max in such a case in the front region is the ideal material to use. In the symmetry of the tooth surface properties, the form can be processed one-to-one and the color adaptation is achieved in the painting technique.
E-MAX (All ceramic veneer)
E-max is a kind of full porcelain. It can be used as a substructure, porcelain on it, or it can also be made in one piece.
In which situations can the E-max / bridge prosthesis be applied?
E-max can be used for aesthetic purposes and in cases where cutting teeth, cuspid teeth and small teeth need to be coated. E-max bridge prostheses can be applied only on missing teeth.
What are the differences between Zirconium and E-max?
Both E-max and zirconium veneers are aesthetic dentistry applications. Since the light transmittances of E-max are higher than those of zirconium veneers, E-max ) provide a more natural and aesthetic appearance. Besides, Zirconium are more durable than E-max. If there is more than one tooth missing, Zirconium bridge prostheses are applied because E-max bridge prostheses can not be applied due to their fragility.
Are there full porcelain applications other than Zirconium crown and E-max?
Many full porcelain materials have been developed in the field of dentistry, with the development of computerized design and production technology (CAD-CAM).
Why Zirconium / E-max prostheses have a better aesthetic appearance than metal-supported porcelain prostheses?
The base of the porcelain crown / bridge prostheses applied in the routine is a gray metal alloy. These metal-supported porcelain crown / bridge prostheses create a gray reflection in the gingival area, especially when applied to the anterior region teeth. The gum appears to be gray. This view is due to the dissolution of the metal alloy in the bottom of the porcelain coatings over time and accumulation in the gum area. Furthermore, due to the metal being the base, the porcelain’s light transmission is reduced and these restorations(coatings) appear in a dull matte color. Due to these aesthetic problems, the use of Zirconium / E-max / bridge prosthesis has increased in recent years. In full porcelain prosthesis, the coatings can be made entirely of porcelain material without infrastructure or can also be made using a white background. In addition, full porcelain restorations create a more natural and aesthetic appearance because the light transmission is very close to the natural tooth mine.
How to decide which full porcelain system will be applied?
A detailed clinical and radiological examination of the patient is performed, followed by the selection of the most appropriate material, and aesthetic applications are successfully performed.
Can Zirconium / E-max prostheses be used in individuals who are allergic to metal?
The use of metal-backed porcelain coatings in individuals who are allergic to metal can cause allergic reactions, and full porcelain coatings, as Zirconium / E-max, eliminate all these problems.
How to care for full porcelain crown / bridge prosthesis?
Full porcelain fixed dentures should be routinely maintained to care by using toothbrushes and toothpaste as they are in natural teeth. Interfaces of dentures should be cleaned using SuperFloss type dental floss and especially interface brush. The annual routine dental check should not be suspended.
