If you have been looking into getting dental veneers, you may have heard of a type of tooth veneer called Emax Veneers. Most people who hear this term for the first time end up being curious as to what they are. In this article, we will address this topic, and how these veneers have revolutionized modern cosmetic dentistry.

What is an Emax veneer?

Different dental veneers are composed of different materials. The same applies for Emax veneers. An Emax veneer is composed of a substance called ‘lithium disilicate‘, which is a very durable glass ceramic that is resistant to fracture. It is extremely cosmetic, and is the #1 type of dental veneer that is purchased by patients across the nation. It’s durability allows these veneers to last patients over 15 wears of wear and tear in the mouth without staining, breaking, or falling off if correctly performed by your treating cosmetic dentist.

 

How long do Emax laminate veneers last?

As mentioned earlier, most of these Emax veneers last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. The most important part of getting veneers is choosing the right cosmetic dentist to perform your procedure. If fabricated improperly, veneers can be prone to breakage and falling off, a situation that can be very disconcerting for patients.

Can Emax veneers stain?

Emax veneers are resistant to staining. Staining can sometimes be seen at the junction of the veneer and the tooth structure if your tooth is not prepared toward the back. If any staining is seen with your veneers make sure you visit your cosmetic dentist as soon as possible. The great news is that stains can be easily removed off the tooth structure and polished relatively quickly.

Are Emax veneers the best?

Our team at Best Dental feels very strongly about Emax veneers, their quality, and their durability. The majority of our cases are completed with Emax, although patients who severely grind their teeth are normally treatment planned with jacket crowns. Are Emax veneers the best? We think so.

Will my Emax veneers remain white?

Although they are resistant to staining, just like your natural teeth, veneers can stain. If you brush and floss twice a day, see your dentist for check ups every six months, they will remain white indefinitely. Just like anything else in life, the better you take care of it, the better they look and the longer they last.

Are Emax Veneers better than Zirconia?

Another type of dental veneer material is called Zirconia. It’s a substrate crystal of the element Zirconium, and is used in dentistry to construct veneers and dental crowns. Although not as cosmetic as Emax veneers, Zirconia veneers still look natural. They are not as cosmetic as their Emax counterpart, but where the lack in appearance they make up for in durability. These veneers are more resistant to fracture versus Emax making them a good choice for patients who brux and grind their teeth.
