What are emax veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a thin layer of material used to cover a tooth to enhance its outer image. Many people use veneers to cover discolouration and to fill in cracks or chipped teeth.
Emax is one of the best forms of porcelain veneer used today in cosmetic dentistry. They are known for their ability to improve the function and aesthetics of damaged, crooked or stained teeth. Emax veneers are created through a unique method, which gives them superior results. First, the initial mould is made from wax which is then used to create the custom veneer. A cast is then made, which is inserted with porcelain under high pressure.
Why do I need emax veneers?
A couple of the main reasons why our patients come to us for veneers are:
- Uneven teeth
These issues can be solved with the help of Emax veneers. There are various porcelain veneers available on the market, but the type and quality you require will depend on the extent of damage to your teeth. As these repairs are most often cosmetic, we must be very strict in maintaining the aesthetics. You want your veneers to be of the best quality and to ensure that they last you a very long time.
Case study: two emax porcelain veneers
This patient was unhappy with the shape and position of his two front teeth – we used Emax porcelain veneers to improve the aesthetics of the smile.
Case study: Ten porcelain veneers and one dental crown
This lady was unhappy with the colour and shape of her teeth. So, ten veneers and one crown were fitted to improve the smile, and teeth whitening was applied to the lower teeth. She was delighted with the result achieved.
Advantages of Emax
Emax veneers are preferred because they can be created using a very thin layer of porcelain. Porcelain veneers can be used in a thin layer because the material is of such high quality that it is durable and robust, even in a light quantity.
The main advantage of Emax is that it saves existing teeth from being further damaged. Once you have a veneer, your tooth should be as good as new and, with constant care and attention, you will not require future treatment. Other veneers may require drilling and extra preparation work on the teeth that can ruin your enamel. They can also create more space between your teeth as the layer of material used is not always as thin as Emax.
