What is an E-max crown?

Emax crowns are special type of crowns made from lithium disilicate material which is preferred for its longer lasting, aesthetic qualities and its resistance to cracking. These crowns are made from a single block of this material which makes it a high strength crown and ensures that they compliment the rest of your teeth.

Some common dental crown materials include:

  • Stainless steel: These crowns are pre-fabricated and mostly used on permanent teeth. They are meant to safeguard the tooth or filling from further decay.
  • Metal: These crowns are extremely durable because they are made with alloys that contain gold, base-metal, or platinum. They can comfortably withstand chewing and biting and have a long lifespan.
  • Porcelain-fused metal: While these crowns can be more aesthetically appealing because they can color-match to the adjacent teeth, the porcelain portion can chip off.
  • All-resin: Though these crowns are less expensive, they aren’t durable and can easily fracture over time.
  • All-ceramic/zirconia: (Includes Emax) This type offers a natural, near-perfect color match and might be ideal for people who have metal allergies.

Most dentists usually consider Emax crowns to be among the best because they have an all-ceramic composition based on lithium disilicate glass, a material more aesthetically-pleasing and durable than other types of crown materials.

Also there are many types of Emax crowns to choose from:

  • The standard Emax features two layers. The inner layer is a durable support layer called coping. It’s topped with a cosmetic upper layer that’s specifically crafted to match the patient’s surrounding teeth.
  • Emax Monolithic is an alternative for patients who needed increased durability. This product features only the coping layer. Patients still get a natural look, but they reduce the risk of chips. It’s a handy choice for people who grind their teeth.










Emax crowns are also ideal for correcting:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth.
  • Discoloration of staining.
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth.
  • Uneven, worn or small teeth
  • Slightly crooked or crowded teeth.
  • Unsightly metal restorations.
