There are a variety of types of crowns ranging from the adequate to the exceptional. Emax crowns are some of the best and it helps to understand why that is before you make your final decision. These crowns are made from ceramic, a material that is as strong as it is attractive.
The Strength of Emax
An Emax crown is designed to do everything that a regular tooth can do, and it’s made in a way that resists cracks even under duress. There are a lot of opinions in the dental community about the type of crowns on the market, but it’s generally agreed that the lithium disilicate ceramic of an Emax is more resilient. This can be a major benefit, even if you don’t foresee your tooth undergoing any type of trauma. An errant seed on a piece of grain bread or a hidden popcorn kernel can end up costing you more than you realize.
The Beauty of the Ceramic Cap
A ceramic tooth can be made to look like a regular tooth, unlike those with the metal bands that surround them. It’s biocompatible, meaning you won’t have to worry about any sensitivity or allergy to the Emax. They mimic the look of your natural enamel so there’s no way to tell when you smile.
You have multiple reasons to keep your natural teeth whenever and however possible. Conservative dentistry protects your oral health so you have the best chance of keeping your smile intact. While implants and removable dentures are always potential options, choosing the right crown today can help you avoid pursuing these options anytime in the future.
You can expect your crown to last up to 15 years or more when you take the proper precautions. The better you take care of it, including seeing your dentist twice a year and brushing and flossing regularly, the more likely it is that it will be as strong a decade later as the day you had it placed.
