In the information provided below, we will briefly discuss the special qualities of emax crowns – brought to you by Oris Smiles Dental Clinic.

What is Emax crown?

Emax crown is made up of lithium disilicate material and has all the good properties like the superior aesthetic of zirconia crown and better strength than zirconia. Emax crowns are preferred due to their strength, durability, and superior aesthetics. There are two types of Emax crowns: standard and monolithic. The standard variety has two layers. The inner layer is called coping and is responsible for durability. It is covered with an aesthetically crafted layer to give superior aesthetics.

Monolithic variety has only the coping layer and is known for its superior durability. It is a preferred variant for the people who clench their teeth. 

Advantages of Emax Crowns

Providing Strength

The crown’s major function is restoring the mouth’s normal chewing function. There have been instances where regular crowns have fractured during normal chewing function. Therefore, the material strength of the crown plays an important role in the long-term success of the prosthesis. Emax crown resists cracking due to its composition of lithium disilicate. Its flexural strength is almost triple than all ceramic crowns. Hence, emax crowns are both strong and aesthetic. 


If we talk about strength, all-metal crowns are also durable, but what makes emax crown special is that it has strength and aesthetics, making it a preferred choice for both front and back teeth. The crowns can aesthetically match your natural teeth. The translucent quality of the crown makes it appear natural, and can also be tinted to match your natural shade. Emax crowns have the property to match your teeth seamlessly, making them a preferred choice. 

Conserving Natural Teeth

While the primary aim of a crown is to restore the damaged tooth, we still want to preserve our natural tooth. Since Emax crowns are strong, they can resist cracking even in their thin layers. Since it can be milled in slim layers, we do not want to trim your teeth much, thus conserving the natural tooth. The tooth preparation for emax crowns is minimal compared to traditional crowns.
