If you desire to conceal dental imperfections and achieve a dazzling new smile that is up to seven shades whiter, porcelain veneers may be an excellent treatment option for you. Did you know that the e.max® veneer is an all-ceramic dental fabrication known for its durability and aesthetically-pleasing appearance? E.max® restorations are crafted from a single block of lithium disilicate ceramic, a high-grade material exhibiting opaque, natural-looking qualities.
In our Nashville, TN office, Dr. Clint Newman offers e.max® veneers to deliver optimal results to patients. No other veneer option provides this combination of strength, durability, and aesthetics. Today, we will discuss e.max® veneers benefits, and how they can help you attain the smile you desire.
E.Max® Veneers are Minimally Invasive
A traditional veneer is approximately one millimeter thick. The revolutionary e.max® veneer has a thickness of only 0.3 millimeters. Because e.max® veneers are significantly thinner than their traditional counterparts, they require little to no preparation. As a result, you can preserve the enamel of your natural teeth and avoid the dental drilling that is required to prepare the teeth for conventional restorations. Typically, the treatment can be completed without the use of local anesthesia.
E.Max® Restorations Are Durable
Since the development of e.max® crowns and veneers, many doctors prefer them to alternative options because of their strength and durability. Even though they are as thin as the average contact lenses, e.max® veneers are incredibly resistant to chipping, breakage, and fractures. This innovative pressed porcelain-ceramic is three times less likely to crack compared to conventional dental ceramic.
E.Max® Veneers Are Long-lasting
When considering veneers, it is important to see a dentist that focuses on cosmetic dentistry, like Dr. Newman. When placed by a skilled doctor, e.max® veneers can last up to 20 years with proper care. This is a vast improvement when compared to traditional veneers, which last approximately ten years on average.
E.Max® Veneers Are Biocompatible
Some traditional dental materials, such as silver amalgam, can be harmful to living tissues. Advances in dentistry have led us to the use of biocompatible materials, such as composite resin and porcelain. When you choose an e.max® restoration, rest assured that it will be fabricated from the highest-grade materials available to help you maintain your healthy smile.
E.Max® Veneers Are Stain-Resistant
Unlike some dental materials, porcelain is stain-resistant. When you choose e.max® restorations, your smile will be resilient to tooth discoloration caused by staining agents such as tea, coffee, and red wine.
E.Max® Restorations Provide Optimal Aesthetics
Perhaps the most obvious advantage of e.max® veneers is their natural-looking aesthetics. Considered a breakthrough in technology, lithium disilicate ceramic offers a slightly translucent and incredibly lifelike appearance. In addition to being the most durable veneers on the market, e.max® restorations blend in seamlessly with your smile. Unlike some dental crowns, e.max® veneers will never show dark or silver metal at the gum line. No one will ever know that you have dental restorations.
