Emax Veneers are the most long-lasting veneers among the porcelain veneers family. However, the most important reason for their preference is to get a good aesthetic appearance that doesn't cause too much damage to the tooth surface, rather than their strength. In Turkey, you can find experienced and well-trained dental experts in Antlara Dental above European standards.
Emax is a type of veneer produced by the strengthening of porcelain components with lithium disilicate or other materials. Being two times more powerful than porcelain veneers, Emax veneers have the same aesthetic appearance supplied as porcelain veneers and don't require large restorations in the teeth.
In some types of Emax Veneers, 10% zirconium is mixed to obtain more robust results. Because they do not contain metal and are made of pure ceramics, the light transmittance is relatively high, and full imitation of the color of natural teeth can be achieved.
What is E-Max Veneers?
Emax Veneers is a strengthened veneer consisting of porcelain components, which is preferred where aesthetic appearance is essential, but the tooth structure is strong enough. The Ivoclar Company developed Emax veneers in 2006. Thanks to the lithium disilicate used in the product content, different opacity values are achieved, and it is possible to obtain the desired natural tooth color.
In conventional porcelain veneers, the interior part of the veneers is coated with metal to produce stronger veneers, but in e max veneers, no metal content is used. Therefore, strong veneers are obtained without compromising the patient's aesthetically beautiful appearance. Emax veneers also do not cause a bad appearance, such as the accumulation of metal on the gums, which forms a gray shade.
Emax Veneers vs. Zirconia Veneers
Before explaining the difference between zirconium and Emax veneers, the difference between zirconium and zirconia should be well understood. Zirconium is a metal with a solid structure, similar to titanium, in its physical and chemical features. Zirconia, on the other hand, is a type of ceramic consisting of a combination of oxygen and zirconium. Zirconia is called ceramic steel due to its robust structure and is a biocompatible material.
Although Zirconia veneers are strong materials, they may not always meet the desired aesthetic appearance and may require large-scale restorations on the teeth. For this reason, dentists prefer emax veneers where aesthetic appearance is at the forefront.
Below you can review the distinctions between these two veneers in detail.
Strength Values (According to ISO 6872)
360-400 Mpa (It may seem less than half of the zirconia strength but still enough to provide strog veneers.)
Brightness and translucency
0.3 mm thicness which doesn’t require big restoration in tooth enamel.
Provide better strength and up to %20 more lifespan.

Who Is the Most Suitable for Emax Veneers?
Emax veneers are the most long-lasting veneers among the porcelain veneers family. However, the most important reason for their preference is to get a good aesthetic appearance that doesn't cause too much damage to the tooth surface, rather than their strength.
For this reason, Emax veneers are mostly preferred on teeth that have not been treated, such as filling or root canal treatment, and that do not have fractures or cracks that reduce the resistance of the tooth. Emax veneers are usually applied to give an aesthetic appearance to the frontal teeth, but for the rear areas, zirconia veneers are preferred to provide maximum strength.
How Long Do Emax Veneers Last?
Emax veneers have an average of 15 years of durability. This period can be extended a little more with the right oral care and dental cleaning, so achieving 20 years of lifespan is a realistic expectation with proper oral respect. However, 25 years of longevity expectation may not be practical. Here are the findings of a study that reveal the exact rate of the life span of E-max veneers.
%96 --> 5-6 years
%93 --> 10-12 years
%91 --> 11-13 years
%73 --> 15-17 years
How Long Does It Take to Get Emax Veneers?
Emax veneers can be completed with 2 to 3 appointments with the dentist. Since they require minimum restoration on the tooth surface and are quickly prepared using CAD and CAM technologies, treatment duration are shorter than other veneer types.
Before starting the treatment, the teeth measurements are taken, and the shapes of the Emax veneers are determined according to the smile design of the patient using the mock-up technique. At the first appointment, necessary preparations are made on the teeth, and temporary veneers are placed. A few days after the first visit, the patient's permanent veneers are prepared and attached to the teeth.

How Do You Prepare for Emax Veneer?
To attach the veneers to the tooth surface, the frontal area of the tooth is trimmed at the same thickness level as the veneers. If the tooth has decayed areas, the dentist scrapes it more deeply to clean the decayed areas. For Emax veneers, 3 to 5 mm scraping is enough. That is almost the same thickness level with the shell of an egg.
How Do They Do Emax Veneers?
Emax veneers are crafted from block-porcelain in the laboratory. After producing these veneers, they are individually painted and polished to achieve the desired shade of tooth color. The laboratory phase requires pure artistry skills.
