To the uninitiated it could appear that all dental veneers were exactly the same. However, although they are all used for the same purpose – to give you that bright and perfectly white smile, they are not the same in terms of their properties or even the outcome they give you. As well as the type of veneer, the quality of the result also depends on your dental technicians ability and experience.
It has to be said that Emax veneers are one of the more expensive kinds of veneers available, but they are also known to last longer than less pricey models and perform well.
Let’s take a look at Emax veneers in a little bit more detail, so you can determine whether they would be right for you.
Pros of Emax Veneers
Doesn’t Require As Much Tooth Reshaping
Compared to alternatives, because of their slimmer design, Emax veneers can often be placed straight onto the actual teeth without them looking too unnatural or bulky. The more traditional, porcelain kind are cut thicker and therefore require the real teeth to be scaled back and remoulded for the veneers to fit comfortably. Because the Emax veneers are made from a special kind of porcelain they can be cut thinner without losing structural integrity.
As the Emax veneers are made from ultra-durable, pressed ceramic porcelain, they are more likely to outlast others on the market, and by as much as 10 years. Many patients fail to realise that veneers, even the ones that last the longest, do not stay the same indefinitely and can eventually crack or chip. When fitted by a dental technician, like those at Estecia Dental Lab, can stay in peak condition without cracks or chips for as long as 20 years. Additionally, as your natural teeth do not need extensive remodelling, the process can be reversed, so it is not nearly as permanent as other forms of veneers.
Stronger Process For Bonding The Veneers To Teeth
This again is related to the fact you do not need to have your own teeth scaled and shaved back as much as you do when having more traditional veneers. The Emax veneers can actually be bonded directly onto the surface enamel without the need of a weak dentin layer. There have been many studies that have proven that enamel bonding is stronger than dentin bonding and that this gives the veneers the best chance to perform to a higher standard for much longer.
Reduced Treatment Time
Following on from the above points, because you do not require as much filing, drilling and scaling back of your original teeth, it is much quicker to prepare for Emax veneers to be fitted in than it is for more traditional veneers. There are no temporary veneers required between appointments either as the function or appearance of your teeth are not altered dramatically. It can take as little as 2 sittings to fit Emax veneers. The first appointment involves the tooth preparation process while the second involves the bonding of the synthetic veneer shells into place against your teeth.
As you can see from the above, there are many reasons to seriously consider Emax veneers when it comes to having your broken, chipped and otherwise damaged teeth fixed and dealt with. Although they are more expensive, you get real value for money in that they last longer than many others out there and even when it is time to have them replaced, they have still lasted longer than cheaper counterparts.
Obviously it is down to your own personal situation, needs and even budget, but the many advantages above give a strong argument for Emax veneers being your veneers of choice.
