Emax is a type of all-ceramic crown used in dental restoration. It is made of leucite-reinforced lithium disilicate ceramic and is known for its strength and aesthetics compared to other materials.

Additionally, the improved oxygen permeability provided by the ceramic material can potentially increase the longevity of the restoration.
This depends on the desired outcome of treatment. Zirconia is a popular option for durability and natural esthetics, while Emax is a more esthetic choice with improved stain resistance. Both have their pros and cons, so ultimately it depends on the individual patient's needs.
Generally speaking, Emax is more esthetically pleasing than porcelain due to its ability to achieve brighter and more vivid shades. Most types of porcelain are also more susceptible to staining and less durable than Emax. However, certain types of porcelain may be better for certain applications so it depends on the individual circumstance.
Yes, EMAX crowns are typically more expensive than traditional porcelain crowns. This is due to the fact that EMAX crowns use high-grade materials, specialized digital scanners, and cutting-edge CAD/CAM technology, which add to the cost of treatment.
