Emax® – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Emax® system?

The Emax® system consists of metal-free materials that closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth. Because Emax® all-ceramic crowns and veneers are created from a single piece of a material called lithium disilicate, your dentist is able to match your original tooth’s colour more consistently.

What is the difference between a veneer and a crown?

Veneers are very thin layers of ceramic that are added to the surface of a person’s front teeth. A crown covers the entire visible surface of the tooth and adds strength and stability. A crown can be used to repair a tooth that has been worn. Teeth grinding, an improper bite, age, fillings and tooth decay are a few common reasons for tooth wear.

What is the procedure like?

Your dentist will evaluate your individual needs to determine the best course of treatment. The procedure to improve your smile will vary based on your situation so it is best to discuss this with your doctor.

How much do these procedures typically cost?

The cost of the procedure will vary based on your dentist’s diagnosis. The cost will also depend on factors such as whether you have cavities or teeth that are in need of specific treatment. It is best to have this conversation during your initial consultation with your dentist to be able to gain a clear understanding of how much your procedure(s) will cost.

Can I go whiter than my actual teeth?

In many cases, your Emax® smile can be whiter than your actual teeth. Often, the treatment will also require some whitening of your un-restored teeth to make sure that your smile has a consistent beautiful appearance.

How long will my Emax® smile last?

Emax® lithium disilicate is an extremely durable material and has been clinically proven for more than 10 years in the dental industry. With proper care and regular dental visits, Emax® restorations can serve you well for years to come.
