E-MAX Veneer


E-max ceramic is a lithium glass ceramic that is used in the dentistry industry to make prostheses. Ivolar Vivadent, the world leader in dental ceramics located in Liechtenstein, created E-max ceramic.

In contrast to the traditional crowns, which were composed of metal ceramics, a blend of metal and ceramic, E-max ceramic prostheses are wholly constructed of ceramic. There are several advantages to using E-max ceramic crowns.

What are the benefits of E-max ceramic prosthetics?

The major benefit of E-max crowns is that they provide a very cosmetic outcome since the lack of metal allows for a result that is extremely near to that of a natural tooth. It is nearly hard to detect the difference between a natural tooth and an E-max ceramic crown.

Indeed, whereas the base of a metal-ceramic crown is formed of metal and must be hidden by the gum during installation, the E-max crown is composed wholly of ceramic and cannot be distinguished from a natural tooth.

What are the drawbacks of using E-max dentures?

E-max crowns have limits and cannot be utilized in every situation. To begin, an E-max crown will not blend in with brightly colored teeth.

Indeed, because E-max crowns let light to flow through, they may be easy to see in the midst of grey teeth; in this situation, ceramic-metallic crowns will be preferred.

In the case of a metal post, E-max crowns are likewise not suggested. Finally, E-max crowns cannot be utilized to create extensive bridges that span several teeth.

Is the E-max crown as durable as a standard crown?

The E-max crown is somewhat less pressure resistant than a metal-ceramic crown or a zirconia crown, both of which are considered intermediate crowns. The pressure resistance of the E-max crown is 1000 MPa, whereas the Zirconia crown is 1400 MPa.
