Dental veneers, crowns, onlays, inlays and bridges are important restorations which enhance the health and functionality of the natural teeth. A sparkling smile can be an enormous confidence-booster and have a dramatic effect on a person’s appearance. Emax is the most natural-looking and strongest type of ceramic restoration available and used by Dr. Robert to achieve unparalleled aesthetics and function when treating his patients.
Emax veneers, crowns, onlays, overlays and dental bridges are renowned for their strength, durability and exceptional optical properties. Emax restorations are completely metal-free, and are constructed from inorganic material which is baked and cured at high temperatures.
Why should I choose Emax ceramic restorations?
Emax is continually refining and enhancing restorations to ensure that they look natural and restore complete functionality to the teeth.
Traditional ceramic restorations were known for being brittle and expensive to repair after sustaining damage. However, Emax has developed a heat-pressed glass ceramic that is immensely strong and durable. There are several reasons for this, including the high shrinkage of leucite crystals. This shrinkage means that compressive stress is created during the vitreous stage, thus preventing breakage and cracking.
The unique veneer glaze and stain also increases strength by as much as 50%. These elements combined establish a thicker restoration that is fracture resistant.
Here are some of the advantages associated with Emax restorations:
- Do not affect other dentition.
- Ease of application.
- Excellent polishing properties.
- Many levels of translucency available.
- Shades match the other teeth.
What restorations can be done using Emax products?
Emax has created many natural-looking restorations, including:
Emax Veneers – These veneers are wafer-thin porcelain and ceramic covers which fit permanently over natural teeth. Emax veneers are perfect for covering disfigured and stained teeth. They are stain and bacteria-resistant, strong, and can be manufactured to match the natural tooth shade.
Emax Crowns – These crowns are generally placed after root canal therapy, or after the removal of tooth decay. Emax crowns are proven to last longer than many types of crowns, and again, can be matched exactly to the natural tooth shade. There is no visible ugly metal edge, just a sensational end result.
Emax Inlays/Onlays – Inlays and onlays are currently being used to replace the traditional amalgam fillings. Amalgam is unpleasant to view and unhealthy for the body. Emax ceramic inlays and overlays are strong, healthy and usually invisible to onlookers.
Emax Bridges – As with all Emax products, Emax bridges are a completely natural-looking way to replace missing teeth. Metal bridges are often highly visible and make the teeth look shorter. Emax bridges are almost impossible to spot, and restore symmetry and sparkle to the smile.
