February 28, 2021

If you are looking for the best what modern dentistry has to offer when it comes to dental crowns, then you will certainly opt for full ceramic crowns. Currently the best available materials are zirconia and E.MAX ceramics. Crowns made ​​out of these materials will provide excellent aesthetics, superior quality and strength. They have ability to imitate the natural tooth, which makes them highly aesthetically valuable. Long lasting beautiful smile is guaranteed. That’s exactly what our patients are looking for when they come to Dental Excellence Turkey.

What are zirconia crowns?

Zirconia material belongs to the top, when we talk about ceramic crowns fabrication. Zirconia is Zirconium Dioxide, a white, powdered metal oxide. It is also ceramic. It is incredibly strong, resistant to wear, and difficult to crack. Biocompatible material very similar to the features of a natural tooth for its mechanical characteristics, because of its firmness and solidity.

Owing to its mechanical characteristics, it is suitable for placement in front as well as in back regions. Ceramics is placed onto a white cap, enabling translucency and light refraction of a natural tooth. It ensures a spitting image of a natural tooth and guarantees a bright smile.

What are E.MAX crowns?

E.MAX is Lithium Disilicate glass, an all-ceramic system. It is one of the most aesthetically pleasing options, porcelain can be layered on it, creating incredible translucency and a very realistic looking tooth that matches with other natural teeth.
In E.MAX porcelain veneers cutting and shrinking is not done in the teeth. Thinning is done up to a maximum of 1,5 millimeters. Therefore, it is a treatment done without any harm to healthy and natural teeth.

The E.MAX veneers are completed in 2 sessions, each lasting 45 minutes.
At Dental Excellence Turkey you can get professional recommendations from our doctors in order to understand what dental treatment is suitable exactly in your case.

What is the difference between E.MAX and zirconia crowns?

Zirconia is recommended for crowns with dark teeth underneath because the opaqueness hides the shadowing. Both E.MAX and zirconia crowns could be used to fix broken or otherwise damaged teeth, severely decayed teeth, missing teeth, discolored teeth, or crooked teeth. Both materials can effectively replace old PFM crowns showing metal lines. Both materials are biocompatible with all soft and hard tissues. The biggest plus of E.MAX veneer is that it is not only limited to ceramic crowns. On the contrary, this system can also be used to manufacture veneers, interior veneers, laminate veneers, Lumineers veneers, and even short span bridges to replace the front teeth.

E.MAX Dental Crowns are more expensive than zirconium crowns. It is preferred in short bridges since it cannot provide the resistance required by long bridges. In rare cases, E.MAX crowns may break when placed on occlusal surfaces. This is because they are thin. However, E.MAX crowns are more suitable for anterior teeth, as we do not use them for hard grinding. If you want to use E.MAX veneer for the posterior teeth, your teeth need to be further cut to obtain sufficient thickness.

Is E.MAX better than Zirconia?

It’s difficult to choose between E.MAX and zirconium. Both offer top-grade results for long-lasting dental crowns. As mentioned before, E.MAX is more translucent than zirconium, and that’s the only noticeable difference between the two materials.

At Dental Excellence Turkey our dentists using both zirconia and E.MAX for both anterior teeth and posterior teeth. It should come down to the patient’s bite. But if a patient has bruxism, we suggest going for zirconia. If not and if there is enough occlusion reduction, E.MAX may be the more aesthetic choice.
