What are Zirconia Crowns?

If we refer to ceramic crowns’ fabrication then the Zirconia material is the peak of this category. Zirconia is Zirconium Dioxide, a white, powdered metal oxide and at the same time it is ceramic as well. It is an astonishingly strong material which is resistant to wear as well as difficult to crack. The Zirconia material is a biocompatible material which is very much the same to the characteristics of a natural tooth for its mechanical attributes, because of its consistency and durability.

For its mechanical characteristics, the zirconia material is very suitable for positioning them in front and back regions. Ceramics are settled onto a white cap, in order to enable translucency and light.

What are E-MAX Crowns?

E-Max is Lithium Disilicate glass, which is a completely ceramic system. It is one of the most delightful options when we refer to a sentient manner, porcelain can be stratified on it while creating astounding translucency as well as a very realistic-looking tooth that harmonizes with all the other natural teeth.

When placing E-Max porcelain veneers then cutting and shrinking must be proceeded in your teeth. The thinning process is completed with a maximum of 1,5 millimeters. As a consequence, it is a treatment procedure that is completely barren of any harm to healthy and natural teeth. 

The E-Max Veneers Procedure is accomplished between 2 sessions, where each session lasts 45 minutes. At Trio Dental Center our dentists will recommend you in a professional manner in order to understand completely which dental treatment is appropriate for your exact needs and requirements.

What is the Difference Between E-MAX and Zirconia Crowns?

Zirconia Crowns are recommended for crowns with dark color teeth beneath for the reason that the opacity covers the shadowing. Both Zirconia and E-Max Crowns can be used to fix any broken or even damaged teeth, strictly decayed teeth, missing teeth, discolored teeth or even crooked teeth. One as well as the other materials can adequately replace old PFM crowns which appear in metal lines. Both materials are biocompatible with the soft as well as the hard tissues. The biggest advantage of the E-Max Veneer is that it is not only restricted to ceramic crowns. Contrariwise, this system can be used as well to manufacture veneers, interior veneers, laminate veneers, Lumineers veneers as well as short span bridges in order to replace the front teeth.

E-Max Dental Crowns are mostly preferred in short bridges because they cannot provide the impedance required by long bridges. In exceptional cases, E-Max crowns might break when fixed on occlusal exterior parts and the reason for that is because they are thin. Despite that, E-Max crowns are more advisable for anterior teeth because they cannot use them for hard grinding. If you desire to make use of E-Max veneer for your posterior teeth then your teeth must be further cut in order to obtain sufficient thickness.

What are Zirconia and E-Max Crown Made of?

Zirconia Crowns are practically considered porcelain crowns for the reason that they are made from an artificial stone, although this stone is made from a metal that is similar to titanium and is named zirconium dioxide. As a consequence, these crowns reap benefits from a steadiness between the strengths of metal as well as porcelain crowns. Like metal crowns, the zirconia crowns are exceptionally strong and long-lasting. This means that the zirconia crowns are uncommonly improbable to chip, crack or break even when you are consuming the hardest and strongest nourishment out there. During the time that those crowns have the durability of metal, zirconia crowns are as a matter of course white and can be tinted to harmonize with your natural teeth, on account of this they look more like porcelain crowns. But despite that, they do not look thoroughly as natural as traditional porcelain crowns. 

E-Max Dental Crowns are constructed of a glass-ceramic material that is especially enduring. Conventional porcelain crowns are about as resistant as your natural teeth, in spite of that E-Max crowns are even more resistant. This indicates that they are less likely to chip, crack or break. When you take care of those crowns in a proper way, then they have the potential to last for decades – it might possibly last even a lifetime. In addition, E-Max Crowns look even more natural-born than conventional porcelain crowns in view of the fact that the material is somewhat translucent, exactly like natural tooth enamel. This grants to the crown a more natural presence. Moreover, they can as well be tinted to match the pigmentation of your natural teeth, so even from a close look, no one can possibly distinguish your E-Max Crown from your natural tooth.

Which of those Two is Better and Under What Circumstances?

Common characteristics of zirconium crowns:

  • It is gentle on the gums and has a low risk of gum disease.
  • Does not lead to metal allergies because it does not consist of minerals.
  • Does not create plaque buildup due to its smooth surface.
  • Pigments such as coffee, tea and cigarettes have no reaction to this. Its color does not alter.
  • Does not cause bad breath or changes in the taste.
  • It is not sensitive to cold or heat due to its thermal insulating properties.
  • During the surgery, patients do not feel discomfort or anxiety. The procedure is performed by a dentist under local anesthesia.

Common features of E-max crowns:

  • E-max lithium silicate crowns have their own set of properties which make them very successful in aesthetic dentistry.
  • E-max Crowns are usually used in cosmetic dentistry due to their charming appearance.
  • These crowns are most often placed on the front teeth.
  • During the surgery, patients do not experience any displeasure or anxiety. The procedure is performed by a dentist under local anesthesia.
  • They do not cause bad breath or taste change.
  • It is not delicate to cold or heat due to its thermal insulating properties.
  • Does not create plaque accumulation due to its smooth surface.

What are the Advantages of Zirconium Crown Placement?

The advantages of placing zirconia crowns are mainly:

  • are biocompatible with human tissues and do not cause allergies
  • are light-permeable and transparent, resulting in excellent aesthetic results
  • the zirconia frame is thinner than the metal frame, so less grinding is required
  • They are made with absolute precision, with the help of a laser scanner and a computer
  • retain less dental plaque than “plain” metal-ceramic crowns, thus ensuring healthier gums
  • have great resistance and strength to corrosion
  • have minimal to zero absorption of dyes

What are the Advantages of E-Max Crown Placement?

The advantages of placing zirconia crowns are mainly:

  • Matches the shade of the natural teeth. EMAX crowns possess adequate translucency that matches the natural teeth, making them an ideal option for the restoration of the front teeth.
  • Preserves the natural tooth structure. The procedure involved in preparing the tooth for the application of EMAX crown requires only minimal removal of the natural tooth structure; this allows you to have a stronger tooth and better oral health.
  • Provides excellent durability. EMAX crowns are made from lithium disilicate material, a glass-ceramic that possesses superb strength. This makes EMAX crowns less likely to crack or fracture.
  • All-ceramic prostheses. Since EMAX crowns are a type of all-ceramic crowns, there will be no displeasing gray line of the underlying metal visible at the gum lines, making them appear more natural-looking than ever.

Frequently Asked Questions

The placement of Zirconia and E-Max Material Crowns has several differences. Some of those include:

  • When referring to the E-max crown then we talk about a material which transmits more light when compared with the zirconium crown. Zirconia crowns have a transparent appearance.
  • Zirconia crowns can look more natural and attractive than E-max crowns.
  • When compared to e-max crowns, zirconium crowns are stronger and durable.
  • If one or more of our patients’ teeth are missing, custom zirconium crowns are considered to be a more appropriate material.

The decision of dental crowns depends on the position where they need to be used. For example, while E-max veneers in Albania are ideal for front teeth, they may not be the best solution for molars. Let’s look in more detail at the main features of each crown.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns are one of the most auspicious materials for tooth replacement in modern dentistry. Zirconia is an elastic and white material. However, there are 3 different types of zirconia crowns that are available and it would be beneficial for a dentist to learn their differences.

  • Full Contour Zirconia 

Although elastic and tooth-colored, zirconia is a non-translucent material which means that it does not allow light to pass through, unlike natural teeth and porcelain. Therefore, full zirconia crowns are not the best choice for usage in aesthetically important areas such as incisors and canines. Due to their mechanical strength, they are used more in molecular teeth, which are in a load-bearing and aesthetically less important area.

  • Full Contour All-Translucent Zirconia  

In order to overcome the aesthetic issues regarding the Full Zirconia crown, the manufacturers started to produce laminated zirconia pieces. These multilayer complete zirconia crowns give better aesthetic results. They are used especially on the front teeth which are aesthetically important and give satisfactory results.

  • Porcelain-fused-to-Zirconia.

Porcelain-fused-to-Zirconia crowns have the same system as PFM Crowns. The porcelain is built on a base material. However, the color of the zirconia base used in the Porcelain-fused-to-Zirconia crown is much closer to the color of a natural tooth, in contrast to the PFM crown. In porcelain fused with zirconia, the combination of zirconia base and translucent porcelain gives excellent aesthetic results. Therefore, it is one of the first choices when referring to cosmetic dentistry.

E-Max Crowns

E-max is a type of ceramic trunk that gives excellent aesthetic results. In contrast to crown’s materials, Emax crowns do not contain metal core material. Therefore, the full crown is made of ceramic. Emax crowns give the most natural look and are used on the front teeth such as incisors, canines and precursors.
