e.max ceramic represents a major breakthrough in restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

The reason behind this is a combination of its high esthetics and superior strength. The all-ceramic dental crowns and restorations made from e.max ceramic are natural-looking and contain no metal.  Depending on the correction you want to make, your dentist will work with you to select the best option whether it be crowns, veneers, a bridge or implants.

All-ceramic restorations have been widely used in dentistry for the last 25 years.  Crowns made with all-ceramic materials exhibit a very natural esthetic appearance due to the lack of any metal in the restoration.  All-ceramic crowns have become a popular choice for patients looking to avoid metal and achieve the best looking result, particularly in the front of the mouth where the teeth are seen most often.

e.max is the #1 all-ceramic restoration used today. The patented e.max material has more than 10 years of clinical evidence with a 98.2% success rate.

What other materials are available?

Full Cast Metal

A full cast crown is comprised entirely of metal and is one of the most basic types of restorations available.  Many times these crowns are made with gold which has good physical properties and adapts well to the oral environment.  One drawback to full cast crowns is that they do not look like actual teeth but in some situations, this may be the best restorative option.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

Porcelain fused to metal or a PFM crown utilizes a metal base which then has glass-ceramic added to the top of it to make the restoration look more like a real tooth.  Choices of metal can vary from non-precious alloys to predominantly gold comprised alloys.  PFM restorations have been used in dentistry for over half a century and provide a very good functioning result.
