A crown, as its name suggests, is a covering that sits over the top of the tooth. Crowns are used in many different scenarios as they protect, cover, seal and strengthen your teeth. The effectiveness of crowns often allow us to save teeth rather than turning to implants. Although where possible we try to avoid crowns since a lot of tooth substance is taken away to create space for the crown. Ever since the Ella Clinic was established we have used only crowns that hae no metal content. We use Zirkonia and ceramic as materials.
Emax is a type of all-ceramic crown with an appealing translucent colour which is combined with extra strength and durability. This crown is made of lithium disilicate ceramic: this is a top grade material which has been harvested for its toughness, durability and opaque qualities which makes it great choice for strength and aesthetics plus it is considered a breakthrough in dental crown technology. You get a glass ceramic crown which is tough and enduring but delicate in appearance.
